Emergency legislation to protect student veterans from losing their GI Bill benefits because of college closings related to the coronavirus outbreak is headed to the president’s desk for final signature after House lawmakers approved the measure Thursday.
The passage came in a pro forma session of the chamber, with only a few lawmakers in attendance and no objection filed from any congressional offices. Earlier in the week, Senate lawmakers rushed the legislation through via a unanimous voice vote.
