Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA), Ranking Member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Health Subcommittee, issued the following statement today regarding the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs nomination:

“Our veterans deserve a strong and steady hand leading the VA. Sadly, the chaos that the White House has wrought throughout this process is a grave disservice to these returning heroes. Now that Admiral Jackson has withdrawn his name from consideration, the President must nominate an individual who has the vision, ability, and necessary leadership experience to achieve the VA’s core mission of providing high-quality and timely care for our nation’s veterans, absent any ideological bias.”
