In December, the House passed HR 3521 – the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Major Medical Facility Lease Authorization Act. This bill is critical for veterans in the First District. HR 3521 authorizes funding for 27 major VA facilities, including the proposed 140,000 square foot Tulsa Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). Authorization for the Tulsa CBOC was initially included in S. 2450, but removed at the last minute.
This letter was sent on June 16th, 2014 to Congressman Jeff Miller, Chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, requesting that authorization of the Tulsa CBOC be included during conference negotiations with the Senate.
