Rep Hughes submits bill requiring regular updates on veterans care

first_img The Legislature will receive quarterly updates pertaining to veterans’ care at state facilities under legislation submitted today by Rep. Holly Hughes, R-Montague.“Our military veterans deserve the best care possible in the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans facilities,” said Rep. Hughes, vice chair of the House Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs. “I hope this legislation will allow us in the House and Senate to know several key areas of interest when it comes to the care of those who have sacrificed for our country.”House Bill 5639 requires the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency or Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to report on staffing levels, patient complaints, distribution of pharmaceutical drugs, how patient funds are allocated and number of resident fatalities to House and Senate committees no later than Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1 of each year.The legislation follows the state Auditor General releasing a report on Feb. 19 that detailed multiple instances of fraudulent reporting and care at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. The House Committee on Veterans and Military Affairs has had several hearings pertaining to the report.“The information shared in the Auditor General’s report was disturbing and completely unacceptable,” said Rep. Hughes. “House Bill 5639 will help make sure the care we all expect is actually taking place in Grand Rapids and Marquette.”HB 5639 was assigned to the House Committee on Oversight and Ethics.
