Secretary Wilkie: VA not affected in the event of partial government shutdown

WASHINGTON, DC – In light of the possibility of a partial federal government shutdown, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie said his agency should not be impacted.

“Thanks to the leadership of President Trump and Congress, VA is fully funded for fiscal year 2019, and in the event of a partial government shutdown, all VA operations will continue unimpeded,” Wilkie said.

“We thank the president and Congress for their commitment to our nation’s heroes in funding VA, and stand ready to provide all of the VA benefits and services our veterans have earned,” he added.
