Donnelly: No Veteran Should Lose Out After ITT Tech’s ClosingOctober 13, 2016 | :
Granger, Ind. — U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly asked Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Bob McDonald to confirm that the bipartisan Veterans First Act—legislation that Donnelly has cosponsored—would enable the VA to restore GI Bill benefits for veterans who were enrolled at ITT Tech at the time of ITT’s closure in September 2016.
In the letter sent to Secretary McDonald, Donnelly urged swift implementation should the Veterans First Act or similar legislation be signed into law by year’s end and asked that VA do everything possible in the interim to assist Hoosier student veterans impacted by the closure.
