Sen. Thune pushes for IHS accountability

WASHINGTON -- Sen. John Thune is taking action.

The South Dakota Republican took to the Senate floor Tuesday in support of a bill he co-sponsored with Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso to address "mismanagement" within the Indian Health Service.

One day after the third IHS hospital in South Dakota was found to have serious deficiencies in the past year, Thune hoped the IHS Accountability Act of 2016 would reform the agency.
