BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Thursday night, Congress wrapped up legislation to revamp the Veterans Affairs Department.

It's in response to the scandal over delays in care at VA medical facilities nationwide.

The Senate approved a $16-billion bill that will help veterans get the treatment they need without major wait times. It now heads to President Obama for his signature.
