Accomplishments

Veterans




Cathy worked hard to pass the Faster Care for Veterans Act which will cut back wait times for veterans seeking health care, and will allow patients to schedule their appointments online or on an app, instead of the outdated 1-800 service.

Introduced the Modernization of Medical Records for Veterans Act (HR 3497). This would require the VA to have a pilot program that would test out transferring patient records to digital copies. Protecting Veterans from losing their medical information, like in the 1973 National Personnel Records Center Fire.

Pushed the VA to implement the 2 year old law requiring the VA to issue ID cards to Veterans.

Secured funding in June 2017 to fix the roof at the Spokane VA and fought to re-open the 24-hour care service.
