“On Friday, 31 veterans advocate groups and military organizations penned a letter to the Senators stressing the need to close the so-called 90/10 loophole. Currently, for-profit schools must collect at least 10% of their revenue from non-federal sources. ‘Closing the 90/10 loophole has long been a top priority for military and veteran serving organizations,’ the letter states. ‘This is even more imperative now as COVID has increased predatory colleges’ targeting of military-connected students.’ The letter was signed by most major veteran and military groups such as AMVETS, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, and the Military Officers Association of America.
To make the 90/10 provision easier to pass, a deal was brokered Thursday night between Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., the chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor and Pensions, and Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, the top Republican on the committee. It would delay implementation of the loophole closure by six months, a source with direct knowledge of the situation said.”
