Congressman Seeks Answers On Allegations Of Outsourcing For Veterans Crisis Line

Iowa Congressman David Young is seeking answers from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary, Robert McDonald, to respond to claims that some VA contractors are using workers from outside of the country to staff the Veterans Crisis Line. Young says he has grave concerns over the allegations, “and how potential outsourcing and contracting Veterans Crisis Line operations may impact our vulnerable veterans.” Young says it is the VA’s duty to ensure their choice have a positive impact on our veterans, especially when it comes to mental health assistance.
