VA's Office of the General Counsel is tasked with interpreting and implementing new laws that affect VA, including last year's defense appropriations, which commissioned a VA study on the benefits of assistance dogs for physically and psychologically wounded veterans.

VA General Counsel Will A. Gunn will appear before the subcommittee, answering questions on behalf of his office and VA on how recent legislation has been enacted.

American Veteran will follow this morning's hearing closely. Check back later today for updates.
