WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Dr. David Shulkin to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA):

“Millions of veterans across our country have been waiting far too long to receive the quality healthcare they deserve. Over the last several years, the VA’s leadership has failed to make desperately needed changes to ensure our veterans who have served and sacrificed can count on the agency sworn to serve them. I remain extremely concerned about the quality of care the VA is delivering, and I am determined to make certain Kansans can access the benefits they have earned. Despite having invited Undersecretary Shulkin to Kansas to visit our veteran healthcare facilities, I have not yet met with him during his time at the VA. He strikes me as a medical professional who cares deeply about serving veterans, and I look forward to meeting with him to hear more about his plans to reform the agency and restore veterans’ faith in the VA.”
