Assembly panel moves bill designed to help bring veterans' hospital to South Jersey

Assembly panel moves bill designed to help bring veterans' hospital to South Jersey

18-member panel would study need, present findings to VA officials

Legislation to establish an 18-member task force to make recommendations to the federal government on how best to build and operate a veterans' health care facility in South Jersey was approved Thursday by the Assembly Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee.

"Our veterans deserve our best, and forcing our southern New Jersey veterans to travel long distances for health care is not acceptable," Assemblyman Matthew W. Milam (D-Cape May), a co-sponsor of the legislation said. "We need to do better, and this task force will help us determine the best way possible to ensure veterans in southern New Jersey get the best health care possible."

South Jersey lacks a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs inpatient medical center, forcing veterans needing inpatient care to travel to veterans' hospitals in North Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York and Delaware.
