Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton today released the following statement after meeting with the nominee for Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, David Shulkin:

"Scandals at the VA have become far too familiar lately, and what they've exposed are serious structural and cultural problems impeding the department's mission. Hundreds of thousands of Arkansas veterans have earned the right to high-quality service, which is a priority of mine. And based on our conversation today, I believe David Shulkin appreciates both the scale and the urgency of the challenge. And throughout his career, he has consistently demonstrated a special concern for our veterans. I look forward to supporting his nomination."
