Senators Propose Bill to Improve Women Veteran's Health Care
A bipartisan group of senators introduced a bill last week that would require the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA) to improve health care for women veterans. According to the summary of the Women Veterans Health Care Improvement Act (see PDF), there are 1.7 million women veterans today, a number that is estimated to double in the next five years.
