  • Stabenow, Peters Join in Introduction of Bill to Protect Veterans & Military Education Benefits

    U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters today joined their colleagues in introducing the Military and Veterans Education Protection Act of 2015 to close a loophole that allows for-profit schools to exploit veteran educational benefits and tuition assistance. Under current law, for-profit schools must follow the "90-10 rule" which requires them to obtain at least 10 percent of their revenues from sources other than taxpayers. However, current law leaves open a loophole that allows for-profit institutions to count military and veteran educational assistance, including tuition assistance and Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefits, as non-federal revenues. As a result, some bad actors in the for-profit industry are exploiting the 90-10 rule loophole by aggressively recruiting servicemembers and veterans eligible for these educational benefits.
