“I’d like to thank the chairs and all the members of the House Oversight and Ethics Committee and the House Military and Veterans Affairs Committee for holding a meeting at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans today. It’s critical that as the committee investigates the findings of substandard care, legislators see and hear these issues from veterans at the home firsthand. I also thank the residents of the home and their family members who testified about the devastating experiences they and their loved ones have experienced. It is clear from the testimony today that there is still much work to be done to ensure that the men and women who served our country get the quality health they deserve.”
