“I was thrilled to see my bill, the VA Transparency & Trust Act of 2021, pass with bipartisan support tonight. It will give veterans, taxpayers, and lawmakers needed insight into how VA is spending COVID relief funds,” said Ranking Member Bost. “Congress has given VA tens of billions of dollars to respond to the pandemic.
