The 1984 Montgomery GI Bill is “outdated” and should eventually be phased out, two members of Congress say, but in the meantime, veterans should get more time to decide if they want it or not.

Rep. Jack Bergman, R-Mich., and Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y. introduced a bill recently they say will save service members “hundreds of dollars and streamline veterans’ education benefits for the future.”

The bill has support from Student Veterans of America (SVA), Veterans Education Success (VES), the American Legion and the VFW.
