Yesterday, the Senate passed the Department of Veterans Affairs Expiring Authorities Act of 2014 (H.R. 5404), which included a provision to extend the VA Child Care Pilot Program - including the facility at the American Lake Veterans Hospital campus that has become an integral resource for local veterans who need to attend appointments without their children.

H.R. 5404 will now head to the president and await his signature. Approval of the provision will extend the program through Dec. 31, 2015.
