WASHINGTON (AP) -- A House panel has voted to place a five-year moratorium on bonuses to senior executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The sponsor of the proposal, Rep. Jeff Miller, Republican chairman of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, says the legislation is in response to media reports about various executives who received performance bonuses despite significant problems that occurred during their watch, such as the increase in the number of disability claims pending longer than 125 days.
The VA had already halted bonuses for those executives overseeing disability claims, but Miller's legislation approved Wednesday extends the ban to other divisions within the government's second-largest department.
The VA did not respond to a request for comment, but has stressed previously that bonuses have been reduced in recent years.
