The chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee says the VA could consider selling or scaling back the over-budget Denver veterans hospital to find the money to complete it.

Florida Republican Rep. Jeff Miller on Tuesday said the Veterans Affairs Department has not taken the troubled construction project seriously. He says Congress won't authorize any more money until it does.
