October 30th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

The House has passed legislation by Maryland Sixth District Congressman John Delaney designed to improve educational and job training programs and benefits administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The Veterans’ Advisory Committee on Education Improvement Act (H.R. 2011) passed by a 404 to 2 vote and now heads to the Senate for approval.  The Delaney bill authorizes the Veterans’ Advisory Committee on Education through December 31, 2015, and expands the makeup of the Committee to include post 9/11 veterans. Representative Delaney said he was happy with the strong bi-partisan effort to provide much needed assistance for veterans.
