Shea-Porter introduces bill on vets’ health services

New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is introducing a bill today that would require states to have access to at least one full-service Veterans hospital or receive comparable services through other health-care providers.

New Hampshire is the only state that does not have a full-service VA hospital or comparable services through a military facility.

Shea-Porter says although there are about 130-thousand veterans living in New Hampshire, many are forced to travel out of state for medical care, including cancer treatment.
