This bill comes in the wake of the V-A scandal that has now spread to 26 facilities nation-wide.
U.S. Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon was among the majority in the House that voted for the V-A Management Accountability Act.
"Americans are correctly outraged by the growing scandal at the V-A. As a nation, we owe our veterans the best care possible. We in the House are continuing to act, passing legislation to clean up this mess once and for all. We've already passed legislation to fund important veterans programs and reduce the unacceptable claims backlog."
The bill is now headed to the senate, where its fate remains uncertain.
