house Bill H.R. 1199

Should the VA Make Its Websites Accessible for Individuals With Disabilities?

Argument in favor

Given the number of veterans with visual impairments ranging from blindness to low vision, the VA’s websites need to be accessible to those with disabilities. This bill would help ensure that the VA fulfills existing legal requirements to that effect, instead of dragging its feet on making its websites accessible.

Is this a trick question? Dosn’t the VA primary deal with sick and wounded veterans? So shouldn’t this be obvious?

Yes, just do it. Vets with disabilities that hinder web access need to be accommodated and should be. Making this mandatory will ensure that it gets done and not further postponed for anyone of many possible bureaucratic delays.

Yes it’s very important to include the disabled in every way possible. It’s the right thing to do.

Argument opposed

The VA has repeatedly reported that it’s working towards compliance with existing laws requiring its websites to be accessible. This bill wouldn’t change the VA’s progress towards that goal, and might even slow it down if the study it requires takes away from valuable personnel hours that would otherwise be spent on site updates.

It’s already being done, this is unnecessary.

The VA should be for those who served in the military only.

I am a disabled vet. I use Myhealthevet regularly. Don't try to fix things not broken. Congress must address the most important items first. Until Congress has recovered from impeachment insanity, and stop holding an illegal, unconstitutional their attempt to overturn Our legal, valid 2016 election, Congress should do no business. The fact that our House has not held a whole house vote, and other items keep coming up proves that the Democrats, along with traitor GOP are
