Bennet Statement on Deputy Secretary Gibson Visit to Aurora VA Hospital

Denver, CO - Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement on Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson's visit to the Aurora VA Hospital site today:

"Colorado Veteran's deserve to have this project completed. The VA needs to identify the money for the facility's completion by looking within the department to cut excess and find areas they can save money. The VA has repeatedly mismanaged this project, and it's time for the agency to be held responsible for developing a plan to finish it. Any plan must also respond to the delegation's call for much more transparency, efficiency and accountability."
