WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH), today voted for the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act (S. 1094). The bill will codify the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection within the Department of Veterans Affairs (established by President Trump by Executive Order) and grant the Secretary of Veterans Affairs additional authority to remove employees (including Senior Executive Service employees) due to poor performance or misconduct. The Congressman released the following statement after voting for passage:
 
“When I ran for Congress, I promised to help fix the VA. I am proud to do that today by voting for the long-overdue VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act. Congress cannot stop here. We need to build on this victory so that veterans can finally receive the care they have earned.”
