The Department of Veterans Affairs is now required to report to Congress on how it plans to provide Vet Center services in the Marianas and other areas that have no Vet Center. I included the requirement by amendment of H.R. 1812, which the President signed into law Tuesday. The bill expands Vet Center services—specifically, readjustment counseling and other mental health care—which underscores the need for the Department to explain how they will make sure Marianas veterans are treated equally. Guam Vet Center staff periodically conduct outreach, but our veterans deserve more frequent and regular access to all Vet Center services. I have also included a provision in the Fiscal Year 2021 VA funding bill report mandating an assessment of increasing staffing and establishing a Vet Center in the Marianas.
