WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, introduced the Educational Development (ED) for Troops and Veterans Act, legislation to improve higher education opportunities for troops and military families.
“We need to make it as easy as possible for Ohio service members to use the education benefits they’ve earned,” said Brown. “This bill supports our men and women in uniform by helping more service members earn and use their education benefits and protecting those who volunteer to serve from getting hit with student loan bills before going on deployment.”
