Press Release

WASHINGTON--Today Congressman Luke Messer voted for a thorough review of the claims backlog at the Department of Veterans affairs. H.R. 2189 passed with bi-partisan support and requires the VA to commission a task force to evaluate the backlog of claims and analyze potential improvements to the claims process. He released the following statement:

“The VA disability claims and appeals process is severely backlogged nationwide. We have been pressuring the Obama Administration on this issue for months,” said Congressman Luke Messer. “I hope that through this thorough review, the VA can find ways to improve the claims process and ensure our veterans can more quickly get the compensation they’ve earned.”
