Va. colleges make pact with Youngkin on veterans benefits

Gov. Glenn Youngkin today says that each of the leaders of Virginia’s public colleges and universities, including the chancellor of the Commonwealth’s community college system, has agreed to take all necessary action to ensure no student or prospective student is further adversely impacted by the gap in time from July 1st to when HB 6004 and SB 6012 are passed and signed to fully repeal and reverse the tuition waiver eligibility changes to the Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Program and other similarly impacted programs.

“Today, I personally spoke with the Presidents of all 16 public colleges and universities in the Commonwealth, as well as the Chancellor of the Virginia Community College System, and everyone agreed to not allow this gap in time to disadvantage or harm our military heroes, first responders, and their families,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “I look forward to the House and Senate returning on July 18th as announced and sending to my desk HB 6004 and SB 6012, which fully repeal the damaging language, without caveats or conditions, and provide a total of $65 million in each year of the biennium to this important program.”
