In an attempt to remove the possible financial damage caused by last years Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Improvement Act, Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) has introduced H.R. 1383, the Restoring GI Bill Fairness Act of 2011. H.R. 1383 will temporarily authorize the VA to cover the tuition and fees for veterans attending non-public education and training institutions that have tuition and fees which exceed $17,500 a year. This bill would add back in a "hold no harm” element to the law. Let your elected officials know how you feel about this bill.
