NH Democrat Hassan to speak to vets about strengthening VA
SHELBURNE, N.H. (AP) — Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan is scheduled to speak about the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at a veterans’ convention in New Hampshire.
Hassan is set to speak at the New Hampshire Veterans of Foreign Wars State Convention on Saturday. The event is taking place at the Town and Country Inn in Shelburne. She is also scheduled to visit Wildcat Mountain later in the day.
Hassan voted in favor of the VA Mission Act which has since been signed into law. She says strengthening the VA system is one of her priorities as a legislator. She and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida have introduced a bill to prioritize employment and education for veterans.
