NM congressman to hold town hall for veterans
Question of the Day
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - U.S. congressman Ben Ray Lujan will be hosting a town hall via telephone to discuss the latest reports that thousands of New Mexico veterans have had long waits for medical care in the Veterans Affairs health care system.
The town hall with the New Mexico Democrat will take place Thursday evening.
Members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation have been reaching out to veterans in recent weeks as they try to gage the extent of the wait times and the quality of care patients are receiving from the VA.
U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce says he surveyed New Mexico veterans and found they’re waiting longer for appointments than what a recent federal audit shows.
The New Mexico Republican says the conversation with the VA needs to be open and transparent.
