Esty introduces bill to overhaul VA benefit appeals process

5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty has introduced legislation to overhaul the current appeals process at the Department of Veterans Affairs.  She says nearly half a million veterans are in limbo because of the VA's existing backlog.  The legislation creates three separate paths for veterans to choose when seeking redress from a decision by the Veterans Benefits Administration on their claims for VA benefits.  Esty is calling for dramatically shortening the average wait time for an appeal from five years to 125 days.
