GI Bill goes to President’s desk

Jul 27, 2020

Veterans and their families will be able to use the GI bill to pay for preparatory courses for professional license and certification exams once the President signs a package of bills Congress sent to the White House on Monday. The package includes my bill, H.R. 2934, the GI Bill Access to Career Credentials Act, which is designed to help veterans and eligible family members get into nursing, teaching, technology and other careers that require government-recognized licenses and certifications by making it easier for them to pass the necessary tests. The package I piggybacked on also increases Special Adaptive Housing grant funding for disabled veterans and expedites VA work-study payments for students.
