S.932 or the Putting Veterans Funding First Act of 2013 changes the way Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) discretionary budget is funded.  Under S.932 this budget would be funded one fiscal year in advance of the year they would be spent to avoid fund disruption due to delayed appropriations or a government shutdown.  Some of the VA programs that are funded by the discretionary budget include: VA home loans and VA education benefits.
