June 5 (Bloomberg) — Veterans’ hospitals could hire more doctors and nurses under a plan announced by bipartisan Senate negotiators in an effort to reduce the long waits for thousands of military veterans seeking care.

“We have a crisis on our hands,” Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent and chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, said on the Senate floor today. “We have learned that in many parts of this country — not all parts, but many parts — veterans cannot get the timely care that they need.”
