GI Bill Fairness Actby Michael Patrick Brewer on Jan. 28, 2013, under Veterans Benefits
This is a pretty big deal, given that it was not so long ago that banks were getting kick backs on student loans. The loans for out -of -state veterans were bigger, therefore the respective schools were making more money on the backs of our veterans. It was kind of like an academic institutionalized Amway.
GI Bill Tuition Fairness Act of 2013
Week of January 28, 2013
The Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs recently introduced bipartisan legislation (H.R. 357) that would require state operated schools to charge veterans in-state tuition rates even though they may not be residents of the states where the schools are located. The requirement would apply to state schools which have programs which are eligible for Department of Veterans Affairs education programs under the GI Bill. This move could help veterans save thousands in out-of-pocket tuition expenses.
