U.S. Rep. John Katko (R-NY) has introduced bipartisan legislation to incentivize continued military service and enable more Americans to enroll in postsecondary education.
Congressman Katko on Dec. 15 unveiled the Education Assistance to Realign New Eligibilities for Dependents Act of 2017, also known as the EARNED Act. The bill would expand certain service members’ ability to transfer their unused education benefits to their spouses or dependent children.
