The House has overwhelmingly approved legislation to allow patients facing long waits for care at Veterans Affairs facilities to get VA-paid treatment from local doctors.
Tuesday's 421-0 vote was Congress' latest response to the outcry over backlogs and falsified data at the VA.
The bill is similar to a broader measure that the Senate plans to debate soon.
