Excerpt from Hearing: Before the Subcommittee on Hospitals and Health Care of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs House of Representatives; One Hundred Third Congress; April 28, 1993

The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 9:37 a.m., in room 334, Cannon House Office Building, Hon. J. Roy Rowland (chairman of the subcommittee), presiding.

Present: Representatives Rowland, Kennedy, Long, Edwards of Texas, Filner, Tejeda, Gutierrez, Baesler, Bishop, Kreidler, Brown, Smith, Bilirakis, Hutchinson, Everett, Buyer, and Linder.

Opening statement of chairman Rowland

Mr. Rowland. Turning now to the subject of our hearing, all of us, I'm sure, await with great interest submission of the President's proposal for comprehensive health reform.

Certainly our hearings have underscored that proposal that envisions far-reaching change and, with it, both challenges and opportunities for the VA health care system.

At one time there was a concern that the development of this reform proposal might simply ignore the VA health care system. That concern has been allayed.

The First Lady herself has made it clear to Chairmen Rockefeller, Montgomery, and myself that the President's proposal will address VA health care and will assure the independence of the VA health care system. She has given the same assurances to the veterans' service organizations.

I feel that all of us who pressed to have VA play a role in shaping this reform are very pleased that Secretary Brown has been serving on the White House task force, and that more than 30 VA staffers are participating in the supporting work groups.

Notwithstanding the extent of VA s participation, I know that the President will not want to send up this legislation without knowing that there's support for it in the veterans' arena.

So this hearing provides us an important vehicle to identify the principles against which the President can gauge whatever specific proposal for VA emerges from his task force. Similarly, the hearing can provide our committee a basis against which to gauge the President's proposal.
