Congressman Young Questions VA Officials on Veterans Crisis Line Progress
Washington D.C. – Iowa Congressman David Young continued his fight to hold the VA accountable for fixing the problems with the Veterans Crisis Line in a Capitol Hill hearing on Tuesday. Young was invited by the U.S. House Veterans Affairs Committee to sit as a special guest because he authored a federal law enacted in late 2016 to address the numerous failures of the VA’s Veterans Crisis Line.
Recently the U.S. House passed legislation known as the VA Accountability First Act of 2017. (Click here to read the bill.)

Late on a Saturday evening in the spring of 2016, one of our dedicated staff got a call from an Iowa veteran in need of assistance. He was having a bad day and had reached out to the Department of Veteran Administration’s (VA) Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) for help. The VCL failed him. His calls kept dropping or going to voicemail. I thank God he reached out to our staffer and she was there to answer the call.

As Iowans we know our word means something. We also know when you put your name on something, you take more time to consider the results and produce a better work product.
