The U.S. House of Representatives has passed H.R.8656, a bipartisan bill introduced by the Indiana delegation to name the Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic in Mishawaka, the “Jackie Walorski VA Clinic” by unanimous consent:
Said, Rep. Jim Banks: “Today was a sad day in Congress without my friend Jackie Walorski. Her presence was sorely missed by all who knew her. Rep. Walorski was a fierce advocate for the veterans in her district and it is my hope naming the Mishawaka VA clinic in her honor will help preserve her legacy as one of our nation’s finest public servants. I want to thank Leader McCarthy for his help in securing the passage of this legislation and Speaker Pelosi for bringing this bill up for a vote.”
Walorski served on the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs for two terms, a role in which she championed important reforms to improve the quality and accessibility of services for our nation’s military veterans and the lives of veteran constituents at home.
On Wednesday, Aug. 3, Rep. Walorski, her communications director Emma Thomson, and Walorski’s district director Zach Potts lost their lives in a car crash while traveling in Indiana’s second district.
