It is appalling that the VA has been unable to ensure our veterans receive the care they need in a time of crisis. Tonight, I voted with a bipartisan majority requiring the VA to develop a plan to help our veterans in need.
I am glad to see Congress act in a bipartisan manner on this issue. Construction of the Aurora VA Facility has been an absolute taxpayer boondoggle and the Senior Leadership at the VA must be held accountable.
Today, I had the honor of talking about Baldwin Community Schools and the success of the Baldwin Promise on the House floor. It's great to see Starbucks highlight this transformative effort by featuring the community's story in the new "Upstanders" series.

This afternoon, I attended the groundbreaking for the impressive Piper Lakes Apartments complex in Grand Haven. This is another great example of the economic, job, and population growth happening in Ottawa County and across West Michigan! Good things are on the horizon!
