Va. Pushing Ahead with New Veterans' Centers

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- State officials are moving ahead with plans to build two new veteran health centers without waiting for federal government funding.

Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Tuesday he is amending legislation as part of a bipartisan plan so that $67 million in state funds can be used to start construction on the centers without federal help.

Virginia already has two centers in Richmond and Roanoke and plans to build the new ones in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads.

Officials said that by not waiting on federal funding to begin construction, they will speed up the opening of the new centers by several years. They said Virginia will eventually be reimbursed by the federal government for the construction.
