ADG: Student vets’ aid OK’d on housing; Boozman’s bill ensures funding

Written by Press Release

January 6, 2019

WASHINGTON–President Donald Trump has signed legislation aimed at helping student military veterans who haven’t received their full GI benefits.

At the Student Veterans of America National Conference in Orlando, Fla., on Saturday, leaders portrayed passage of the Forever GI Housing Payment Fulfillment Act as an important victory for their members.

Arkansas’ U.S. Sen. John Boozman, a Republican from Rogers, introduced the bill on Dec. 18, four days after Congress had originally planned to adjourn. He rounded up eight Democratic co-sponsors and two Republican co-sponsors, successfully championing it during the final days of the 115th session of Congress.
