AUSTIN (AP) - Texas will help process thousands of backlogged federal disability claims at Department of Veterans Affairs regional offices in Houston and Waco.

The Texas Veterans Commission in Austin announced the initiative Tuesday. Texas is committing $1.5 million to the project.

So-called strike force teams, made up of eight counselors, are expected to help relieve a backlog of nearly 69,000 claims pending for more than 125 days.

Additional staffers will be dispatched to Dallas, Fort Worth, Temple, Austin, Houston, San Antonio and McAllen to assist veterans in filing their claims.
