Letter to Senate Veterans Affairs Committee on the G.I. Bill Consumer Awareness Act

September 12, 2012

​Letter to Senate Veterans Affairs Chairman Patty Murray and Ranking Member Richard Burr on the G.I. Bill Consumer Awareness Act (S. 2241), which would provide additional consumer information and protections for veterans using G.I. Bill education benefits. While ACE strongly supports efforts to provide veterans with accurate information and to protect them from fraudulent and unduly aggressive recruiting practices occurring at a subset of institutions, there are concerns that some provisions may undercut the bill's larger goals.
