Arkansas' U.S. Sen. John Boozman is asking Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki for more information on wait times that Arkansas veterans face to receive medical care at VA facilities.

Boozman is a member of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee but couldn't attend Thursday's hearing because he is still recovering from unexpected heart surgery last month. In a letter to Shinseki, Boozman says a full analysis of the future of Veterans Affairs health care is needed.

Shinseki said that he hopes to have a preliminary report within three weeks on how widespread treatment delays and falsified patient scheduling reports are at VA facilities nationwide. The hearing in Washington follows allegations that up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at a VA center in Phoenix.
