Reps. Push for Building of VA Health Centers in S.J. County
Last week, three House lawmakers representing the San Joaquin Valley region -- Reps. Dennis Cardoza (D), Jeff Denham (R) and Jerry McNerney (D) -- sent a letter to President Obama calling for the federal government to fast track a planned project to build a new nursing home and expand an outpatient clinic for veterans in San Joaquin County. The three lawmakers said the new medical facilities, which will be located in French Camp, will improve access to care for thousands of veterans and create hundreds of new jobs in the region.
