Vote coming on help for veterans

As soon as today, the U.S. House could vote on a $17 bil­lion bill to improve vet­er­ans’ health care. The pro­posal is designed to cut down on vet­er­ans’ wait time for health care. It also will go to hire more doc­tors and nurses for vet­er­ans. A Sen­ate vote could come soon. There’s a hurry to get this done, as law­mak­ers leave this week­end for a five-week break.
