Luján Statement on VA’s Recommendations to the Asset and Infrastructure Review Commission

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) released the following statement today after the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) released its recommendations for the Asset and Infrastructure Review (AIR) Commission:

“Our nation’s veterans deserve the highest-level of care. Closing these facilities will adversely affect the care they receive and I will fight against any recommendation that closes facilities or requires our Veterans travel longer and further for care. It is also unconscionable to push our Veterans for VA care to local providers that are already strained,” said Senator Luján.

“This is the first step in a year-long process. I look forward to working with the Department of Veterans Affairs, President and local partners in the coming months.”
