Congressman Helping Vets Harmed by ITT Tech ClosingMarch 16, 2017 |
by U.S Rep. Luke Messer
Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) is working to restore GI Bill educational benefits to veterans harmed by school closures, like the recent closure of Indiana-based ITT Technical Institute.
ITT Tech closed its doors in September of 2016, impacting 130 campuses nationwide and an estimated 40,000 students, including more than 7,000 veterans. While many students have been able to discharge loans in the wake of ITT Tech’s closure, veterans have not received any relief or reinstatement of their earned GI Bill benefits.
