Trump extends bill for private help for veterans as Pence visits Asia

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - President Trump is preparing to sign an extension to a bill that allows veterans to receive medical help from private providers.

If they can't get it at the VA, or if they live too far from a VA facility.

This program was first established in response to the VA crisis in 2014, but was set to expire this year.

Lawmakers voted unanimously in the Senate to extend it.

Craig Boswell has the details from the White House.
