Daniel Patterson is the southwest director of PEER and a former Bureau of Land Management employee. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the details of the lawsuit.

The House and Senate have both passed bills to shore up the Veterans Affairs Department. Now they are in conference to reconcile. The final bill would give veterans more opportunities to seek care outside of VA hospitals, while beefing up the VA's own medical staff. The Congressional Budget Office has scored the VA bill and estimates the expense of the additional care would be about $50 billion. Yevgeniy Feyman, fellow at the Manhattan Institute, joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss whether all the money will help.
One of the most damaging aspects of hurricanes is not the storm itself — it is what happens afterwards.

James Franklin is the branch chief in NOAA's hurricane specialist unit. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive from the National Hurricane Center.
