MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A special state House committee is examining ways to improve housing options for Minnesota veterans with long-term needs.

The House Select Committee on Veterans Housing planned a tour Wednesday of the Minneapolis Veterans Home and nearby Veterans Administration Medical Facility.

The panel, created this year, is tasked with appraising the current state of veterans housing in Minnesota. It is building toward a February 2014 report, which will be issued just before the Legislature begins crafting a construction borrowing package next session.

Geographic access, partnerships with the private sector and the cost effectiveness of current programs are among the things the committee is studying.
