As ordered reported by the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs on May 8, 2013
H.R. 1405 would make changes to certain administrative procedures and programs of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), including the fiduciary program, access to case-tracking information, and limits on bonuses for employees. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1405 would yield net discretionary savings of $108 million over the 2014-2018 period, assuming appropriation actions consistent with the bill.
Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
H.R. 1405 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
