Moran calls for VA crisis line probe

(MSC News)--United States Senator Jerry Moran, of Kansas, has initiated an investigation with the U.S. Government Accountability Office regarding the Veterans Crisis Line after being alerted by current and former VA employees of substantial evidence of mismanagement, creating a danger to the health and safety of veterans nationwide.

That's according to a release from the Kansas Republican's office, with Moran, this week, calling on the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary to make certain the VA fully cooperates with an independent investigation of the VA- Veterans Crisis Line.

Moran, in the release, called the VA's history of waiting lists "deplorable," adding that "if the Veterans Crisis Line is letting veterans who reach out in moments of desperation slip through the cracks, as alleged, it needs to be known and it needs to be stopped."

Moran is the ranking member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
