    TAKANO. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of the conference report. I want to thank Chairman Miller for the gracious way that he has conducted the committee hearings, and I thank Ranking Member Michaud for his hard work.



    Principally, I am very pleased that this conference report also includes 1,500 funded graduate medical school education slots at veterans facilities around this country. It was a good thing that we approved access to non-VA care for those servicemembers, those veterans who have been on waiting lists for far too long. But that would not be satisfactory to those areas of the country that are experiencing physician shortages. This is a huge, huge accomplishment for a Congress that is so partisan to approve these 1,500 funded GMEs.

    I urge all my colleagues to support the conference report.
