GI Bill legislation moves to Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A bill that would improve and extend GI Bill benefits to veterans, their surviving spouses and dependents passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on July 24. The bill now heads to the U.S. Senate for action.

The Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017 eliminates restrictions that require GI Bill recipients to use their benefits within 15 years and increases funding for Reservists, Guardsmen and their families. The bill also provides 100% GI Bill eligibility to Post-9/11 Purple Heart recipients and provides incentives for study in STEM fields.
