LITTLE ROCK — Republican U.S. Sen. John Boozman is visiting a Little Rock veterans hospital to talk about recently approved legislation aimed at improving the VA health care system.

Boozman on Friday planned to visit the John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital to talk with local VA officials about the health care system. He also planned to talk about the VA overhaul legislation the president signed into law this week.

The $16.3 billion legislation is intended to help veterans avoid long waits for health care, hire more doctors and nurses to treat them and make firing senior executives at the VA easier.

Boozman is a Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 2010.
