Bill Seeks to Set Up Transition, Education, Jobs Office in V.A.

U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) on April 26 introduced a bipartisan bill to restructure the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) by grouping all veteran transition, education and employment programs into a new government office within the VA.

The Veterans’ Education, Transition and Opportunity Prioritization Plan (VET OPP) Act of 2018, H.R. 5644, would establish the Veterans Economic Opportunity and Transition Administration within the VA to be overseen by a newly created Under Secretary of Veterans Economic Opportunity and Transition. Cosponsors of H.R. 5644 include U.S. Reps. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Mark Takano (D-CA).
