Charge in-state tuition for all veterans using GI Bill - HR 357 and S 944, cosponsored by Congressman Jeff Miller (R-FL), Congressman Mike Michaud (D-ME), Senator John Boozman (R-AK), Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL). These bills would require all schools that accept GI Bill dollars to charge the in-state tuition rate for veterans using the GI Bill. This closes a loophole where vets who - due to their military service - aren't legal residents of any state, get stuck with a bill for the education that the GI Bill was supposed to cover.

This will encourage public universities to charge veterans the in-state tuition rates when using the GI Bill to fund the education if they are out-of-state residents.
