Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02), Ranking Member of the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, announced an upcoming veterans-focused tour through Middle Georgia. Congressman Bishop has invited and will be accompanied by the Honorable Robert McDonald, Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The tour will be complete with VA staff meetings at VA facilities within the 2nd Congressional District and two veterans-focused town hall meetings in Columbus and Macon.

In addition to providing oversight of the VA as the management culture within the Department shifts, Congressman Bishop has been working to ensure all veterans get the timely care and consideration they have earned through their service to our nation. The intent of the tour is to improve VA transparency and highlight the District-specific needs of veterans in Middle and Southwest Georgia.
