Representative Fred Upton says he’s glad the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will soon be “under new leadership.”

Department secretary Eric Shinseki resigned today. The V.A. is facing intense criticism following allegations that veterans were mistreated at its hospitals.

In a statement, Upton says Shinseki has had an “honorable and distinguished career in service to our country” but that the scandal meant “heads needed to roll.”
