Press Release

Washington, D.C. -- Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) released the following statement after the resignation of Secretary Shinseki:

"Our veterans are heroes that deserve the best possible care," Stewart said. "Unfortunately, we've learned over the last few weeks that not all of them have received that care. While it doesn't solve the problem, Sec. Shinseki's resignation was a necessary step in reforming the V.A.  As a veteran myself, I  understand that someone needs to be held accountable in order to move forward. Veterans care should be our top priority and I hope this is just the first step of many to solve the problems within the V.A."
