Dear Chairwoman Murray and Ranking Member Burr:

On behalf of the servicemembers, veterans, and their families and survivors we represent, thank you for closing the 90/10 loophole in the reconciliation package. As the attached letter shows, closing the 90/10 loophole has long been a top priority for military and veteran serving organizations. This is even more imperative now as COVID has increased predatory colleges’ targeting of military-connected students. Closing the loophole removes the recruiting target from the backs of military-connected students and protects taxpayer funds from propping up failing colleges. Too many colleges have closed and left veterans with wasted GI Bill benefits and nothing to show for it.
