VA secretary: Waco's regional office gets 100 jobs

Edwards, a Waco Democrat, says the jobs were needed because the VA has had too few employees to handle a more demanding workload stemming from increased veterans' health care and benefits.

Edwards says the Waco VA Regional Office serves nearly 940,000 veterans and last year processed 126,000 claims for benefits of about $2 billion.

The 100 new employees are to start in Waco on March 1.
