BREAKING: House passes 2 bills to defend the GI Bill & help vets find jobs. President next. More here: @IAVA

will help vets and their families use their GI Bill more smartly and efficiently by providing access to clear information about student outcomes and the schools that they want to attend. Valuable information such as graduation and default rates will help student veterans determine what programs are worth their hard-earned GI Bill dollars. H.R. 4057 also prohibits schools from engaging in predatory recruiting practices, such as paying recruiters commissions or bonuses for each student they enroll. IAVA believes that H.R. 4057 goes a long way toward the goal of empowering student veterans and their families to make the right choices that will lead to educational achievement, success and a bright future.
