President Obama signs a $16 billion veterans administration reform bill into law today. It provides money for more VA hospitals, doctors, and nurses.

The law includes more funds, so some veterans can get health care at private facilities. It also makes it easier to fire or discipline senior v-a officials.

An investigation found dozens of veterans died while waiting for care and uncovered secret lists kept by some VA facilities to hide the waiting periods.
