Rep. Mike Garcia Releases Statement After House Majority Releases VA Spending Bill for FY 2024

Today, Representative Mike Garcia (CA-27) issued the following statement after the House Appropriations Committee released the Fiscal Year 2024 bill for Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, the spending bill that funds the Department of Veterans Affairs and its programs:

“After all the drama and accusations from the Biden administration about House Republicans defunding Veterans Affairs (VA) programs, House Republicans are actually increasing funding for the VA by $18 billion for fiscal year 2024. Like I’ve said all along, I will not support cuts to veterans’ benefits or Department of Defense funding,” said Garcia.
