Michaud criticizes VA reporting of sex assaults

The last thing a female veteran should have to fear at a Department of Veterans Affairs medical facility is being sexually assaulted. But too often it happens, said U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud of Maine. And after failing to prevent a sexual assault at one of its facilities, he said, the VA too often fails to properly report it. Michaud, D-2nd District, spoke at a House hearing Monday that highlighted a federal report, released last week, that shows nearly 300 sexual assaults, including 67 rapes, were alleged to have occurred in the VA network from 2007 to 2010. Most of the incidents were not ...

As he stood at the podium near the $625,000 multiuse recreational trail named after him, U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud couldn’t help noting that one usually has to be dead to be so honored. The East Millinocket resident, the first recognized Franco-American from Maine to be elected to federal office, is very much alive and very grateful, he said, for the accolade.

Michaud Aims to Close Military’s Sweatshop Sneaker Loophole

U.S. Representative Michael Michaud sent a letter to President Barack Obama and sponsored legislation to end the U.S. military’s use of sweatshop shoes. As Michaud explained in his letter, the Department of Defense has recently begun sneaking around the rule that its sneakers must be made in the USA by shuffling money to members of the military for them to purchase required sneakers on their own: The Berry Amendment stipulates that DOD cannot procure food or clothing, among other items, unless the item is grown or produced in the U.S. Congress first established this domestic ...

New VA Law is one of the Most Comprehensive, Bipartisan Bills Passed this Congress
WASHINGTON, D.C.  – The VA healthcare legislation passed by Congress was signed into law by President Obama earlier today, and it represents one of the most comprehensive and bipartisan pieces of legislation passed into law by the 113th Congress. The legislation was finalized by U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, along with Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and other members of the conference committee tasked with reconciling House and Senate bills. The final legislative package put forth by Michaud, Miller, Sanders and the other conference committee members attracted enormous bipartisan support: the bill passed the House by an overwhelming 420 – 5 vote; and by an equally impressive margin in the Senate: 93 – 3. The new law addresses several of the most pressing challenges within the VA: wait time and accountability. The law: Provides $10 billion for veterans to receive care at non-VA facilities if they cannot receive an appointment at their local VA within 30 days; or i
