Congressional hearing on VA office scheduled for Las Vegas

A congressional field hearing set for 2 p.m. Thursday at Las Vegas City Hall will focus on how effective the Department of Veterans Affairs regional benefits office in Reno is for serving veterans in Southern Nevada.

The VA Reno field office is one of the most under-performing VA offices in the nation and the hearing will examine what changes need to be made to better serve veterans in the state, according to Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., ranking member of the subcommittee.

She is hosting the two-hour field hearing with Rep. Jon Runyan, R-N.J., chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs.
