Daines Blasts Biden Administration for Allowing Deplorable Living Conditions for Disabled Veterans at Ft. Harrison

U.S. Senator Steve Daines issued the following statement today in response to news that disabled veterans were told their HUD and VA-endorsed living conditions at Ft. Harrison were dangerous enough to pose a health hazard and possibly force them to move. The Fort Harrison Veterans Residences Limited Partnership is an Enhanced Use Lease (EUL) facilitated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which provides housing for disabled veterans and their families. 

“Joe Biden failed our disabled veterans at Ft. Harrison today,” said Daines. “The Biden administration did not fulfill its most basic responsibility of holding the landlord accountable for the horrible conditions these veterans were forced to live in and then failed to sufficiently notify the veteran tenants of hazardous conditions. The administration may say it cares about our veterans but its actions tell a completely different story.”
