McNerney: ‘VA medical facility at French Camp will improve health care access for veterans’

U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Stockton, issued the following press release today, applauding the House vote to appropriate funds for the French Camp Community Based Outpatient Clinic for veterans:

“The VA medical facility at French Camp will improve health care access for veterans in the San Joaquin Valley, and more than 60,000 veterans throughout the greater Central Valley region. Veterans in our region have waited too long for this clinic, and each step moves us closer to construction on a project that will ensure these veterans receive the benefits they earned while serving our nation. Building a new clinic will also bring hundreds of jobs to the area. I have fought hard to make this clinic a reality for the veterans in our community and I applaud this latest development toward its completion.” McNerney has been a strong champion for bringing a new VA CBOC to French Camp, CA. Funding for the French Camp clinic was included in the FY16 omnibus spending bill passed by Congress in December 2015. Congress has shown support for this project by appropriating money for the French Camp CBOC in FY17. Congress will formally work to authorize funding so that once the design development is complete the VA can begin construction.
