Education money for our heroes... CNMI Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan, a member of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, has cosponsored a revised Post 9/11 GI Bill.
The measure would expand college aid for military veterans and allow new veterans to use the educational benefit later in life. Sablan says the bill would allow veterans to wait to use the benefit beyond the current 15-year limit giving them even more flexibility. He adds the bill is going to get more veterans into college, and that will benefit our nation in the long run. The bill, HR 3218 is expected to go up for a vote by the House of Representatives this month.
