house Bill H.R. 245

Veterans' Education Equity Act

    Post-9/11 GI Bill recipients receive money for housing. Currently, the amount of that payment is calculated not based on school location, but by where the school is certified (which creates issues for satellite campuses). With this law, the payment would become "based on where students attends their classes, not where the institution of higher learning is certified. This bill ensures veterans receive an adequate and fair housing allowance while eliminating fraud and abuse of the program." (Press Release, 2017-01-04 by Mr. Cook) I think this makes perfect sense and advocate for a yea-vote.
