Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing on Defense Health Programs
April 9, 2014

Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) chaired a hearing of the Senate?s Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense today on the Department of Defense?s health programs. Following last week?s shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, and President Obama?s visit to the base today, the hearing focused heavily on the Department?s funding for mental health programs and medical research to aid psychological health and rehabilitation. During the hearing, Durbin questioned Lieutenant General Patricia Horoho, Surgeon General of the Army, on the status of mental health care in the armed forces, and what more could be done.
