(Minneapolis, MN) -- Minnesota's two U.S. Senators are happy that a review is underway of Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics in the state to see if problems exist. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken have sent a letter to top VA officials in Minnesota, and Franken says what he's heard so far is promising. The audit is underway after long delays in Phoenix were blamed for the deaths of dozens of veterans. Franken and Klobuchar both mentioned the controversy during comments at the Memorial Day ceremony at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
