Washington, DC - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following solution on a bill that will allow construction of the VA hospital in Aurora to continue for several more weeks.
"Today's short-term agreement provides some breathing room to continue construction of the hospital while giving the VA and Congress time to find a long-term solution to complete the medical facility. Shutting down the project would be the worst of all possible outcomes. We will continue to push for a long-term plan that includes accountability to make sure a calamity like this does not happen again and that this hospital is complete on time and on budget. Our veterans deserve nothing less."
