House passes bill to streamline firings, demotions at VA

– The Washington Times – Wednesday, July 29, 2015

In the wake of last year’s VA waiting list scandal, the House on Wednesday passed a bill to streamline the process to remove or demote Veterans Affairs employees who are not up to par.

The bill, proposed by Rep. Jeff Miller, Florida Republican and chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, would also introduce an 18-month probationary period for new permanent position hires, after which their superiors can either extend the probationary period or make them permanent.

“The Secretary [of Veterans Affairs] needs the ability to make real reforms and he needs the ability to do it quicker than the current timeline of 6 to 12 months to remove a single employee,” Mr. Miller said on the House floor.
