BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump has signed an emergency spending bill which will pump more than $2 billion into a program which allows veterans to receive private medical care at government expense.

Trump, who made improving veterans care a central campaign promise, signed the VA Choice as well as also Quality Employment Act while at his brand-new Jersey golf club on Saturday. The bill, which addresses a budget shortfall at the Department of Veteran Affairs which threatened medical care for thousands of veterans, provides $2.1 billion to continue funding the Veterans Choice Program, which allows veterans to seek private care.

Another $1.8 billion will go to core VA health programs, including 28 leases for brand-new VA medical facilities. (read more)
