Revised GI bill passes U.S. Senate

University of Cincinnati News Record

The GI Bill may receive a facelift after the U.S. Senate approved a new bill May 22 that aims to expand education benefits for veterans.

The measure passed 75-22 with many Republicans voting in favor of the bill, despite President Bush's threat to veto it.

President Bush threatened to veto the bill if it included domestic programs; the bill approved by Senate would also fund domestic measures, including lengthening unemployment benefits and heat subsidies.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown voted in favor of the bill, but Ohio Sen. George Voinovich voted against it.
