US House Passes Bill by Rep. Ted Lieu CA District 33 to Restore West L.A. VA

“[T]he House of Representatives passed the West Los Angeles Leasing Act of 2016, which authorizes the VA to implement the Master Plan for the West L.A. VA campus. Today represents a giant leap forward in restoring the property to the Old Soldiers’ Home it was always intended to be. If enacted, this legislation will enable the VA to construct 1,200 units of housing for homeless veterans at the West L.A. VA and offer new robust services on the campus such as vocational training, recreation and spiritual support. The legislation also ensures that all leases on the campus principally benefit Veterans and strengthen the partnership between the VA and leaseholders.”
