WASHINGTON, D.C., (Jan. 10, 2023) — Paralyzed Veterans of America Executive Director Carl Blake today released the following statement on today’s announcement of Mike Bost (R-Ill.) as Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs for the 118th Congress.
“We look forward to working with Chairman Bost and ensuring the needs of today’s catastrophically disabled Veterans are properly and expeditiously addressed. Needs like those addressed in PVA’s 2023 Policy Priorities, which include: protecting access to VA’s spinal cord injury and disorder (SCI/D) system of care through sufficient staffing and infrastructure; expanding access to VA long-term services and supports (like Home and Community-Based Services and Caregiver Supports); improving VA specialized benefits and health care services for paralyzed Veterans and their survivors, like home modification grants and improved survivors benefits; and much more. Only by working with Chairman Bost and all members of Congress, can we best support our Veterans, their families, and caregivers.”
