Compromise VA bill includes ABQ facility


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A new clinical research and pharmacological center in Albuquerque is among new Veterans Affairs medical facilities that would be opened under a House-Senate compromise bill to shorten delays in treating veterans.

The legislation authorizes $1.3 billion to lease 27 new outpatient clinics and other medical facilities in 18 states and Puerto Rico.

Most of the new facilities will not begin operation for at least two years.
