WASHINGTON D.C. — Congress is moving with what one senator called “lightning speed” to help thousands of military veterans enduring long wait times for VA medical care.

The Senate is to vote by Thursday on a measure making it easier for veterans who have encountered delays getting initial visits to receive VA-paid treatment from local doctors instead. The measure closely resembles a bill approved unanimously Tuesday in the House, prompting optimism among lawmakers from both parties that a compromise version could be on its way soon to President Obama for his signature.
