Senate bill would expand education for military vets post 9-11

Dayton Daily News

The U.S. Senate last week passed a bill that included provisions authored by Sen. Sherrod Brown aimed at expanding educational opportunities for those who served after 9/11. The bill, which also includes a Brown provision restoring G.I. benefits for veterans who attended ITT Tech and Corinthian College, both for-profit colleges which failed and left veterans with meaningless degrees, passed the House earlier and now goes to President Donald Trump for his signature.

The bill also includes a Brown-backed provision to expand eligibility for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Yellow Ribbon Program to spouses and children of servicemembers who died in combat.
