Now incompetents can be fired!
Yesterday, the U.S. Senate passed the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017.
The bill gives the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
more authority to fire, demote or suspend senior VA officials for
misconduct and poor performance, and requires the secretary to implement
whistleblower protection training and update the program every two
years. The legislation also establishes by law, a position of assistant
secretary for Accountability and Whistleblower Protection.
