This bill:

  • extends in-state tuition at public universities and colleges for all veterans, eliminating the provision that had required veterans to enroll “within 3 years” of leaving military service;
  • gives servicemembers more time (6 months) to think about whether or not they want to sign up for the “Montgomery GI Bill,” which is also known as a “tax on the troops” because it costs servicemembers $1,200 to sign up for eligibility, but most of them eventually choose instead to use the Post-9/11 GI Bill, thereby wasting their $1,200; and
  • sunsets the Montgomery GI Bill in 10 years
