Dayton said the funding was dropped by negotia- tors even though both chambers had approved it just days ago. "It is deplorable that while thousands of our young men and women are serving our nation in Iraq, we are drastically cutting promised funding to our nation's veterans," Dayton said. "We need to fully support our men and women in uniform by pro- viding them with the health care benefits they need after their military service. Our veterans deserve no less." The funds would have been a partial restoration of the $1.8 billion cut by the House this summer in its version of the appropri- ations bill that funds the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Dayton said he will continue to press to completely restore the funds when the Senate takes up its version of the VA funding bill in coming days. Without those funds, area veterans will lose out on $84 million in funding for VA health care.
