This is the May 24, 2017 hearing on "Fiscal Year 2018 Department of Veterans Affairs Budget Request for the Veterans Health Administration," held before the U.S. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs. From the opening statement of Phil Roe: "The budget is not about numbers, it is about priorities. Yesterday afternoon the President proposed a $6.4 billion increase in the VA's [Veteran's Affairs] budget, which is reflective of the high priority that this administration places on serving our veterans. [...] In the coming weeks our Subcommittees will hold hearings to discuss different aspects of the budget in depth. However, during this morning's hearing I want to discuss several overarching issues that I believe are key to transforming the Department of Veterans Affairs into a nimble 21st century organization that our veterans can count on when they need it most." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David J. Shulkin.
