New Veteran Bill To Be Unveiled

A bill that will change the way U.S. Veterans pursue their medical needs will be introduced Tuesday.

North Carolina Senator Richard Burr is among the Republican senators holding a press conference to unveil the Veterans Choice Act, a bill that allows Veterans to seek medical appointments outside the VA Hospital system.

The senators say the legislation would provide Veterans with greater flexibility and choice in health care providers.

The conference regarding the VA bill will be held 1:45 p.m. Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
