WASHINGTON, DC— Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) today released the following statement on the increased funding in the omnibus government spending bill for investments in VA medical centers:

“The Manchester VA Medical Center needs significant infrastructure investments, and I am pleased that the government spending bill released last night includes $2 billion for VA infrastructure. The VA must now prioritize and fund projects that improve the condition of our facility in Manchester and expand the facility’s capacity to deliver services. This is critical to ensuring our veterans have access to the highest quality health care, which they have earned through their service to our nation.”
