WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Thursday, President Barack Obama is expected to sign a veterans health care bill into law.

The $16.3 billion measure allows the Veterans Affairs Department to hire thousands of doctors and other health care workers and makes it easier to fire those that are negligent.

The bill is in response to reports of veterans dying while waiting for doctor appointments and employees covering up those delays.
