Today, Sept. 14, 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives considered H.R. 5620, the VA Accountability First and Appeals Modernization Act of 2016, an omnibus bill that incorporates a series of reforms aimed at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). As part of the bill's consideration, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) introduced an amendment to the bill that contains our hearing healthcare language that was passed just two days ago in H.R. 3471. The amendment was adopted, and H.R. 5620 passed the House 310-116. NOW ONTO THE SENATE!!! IHS Still Needs your support!
