Current Bill Summary

SB 969 - Currently, the tuition limitation authorized by the Missouri Returning Heroes' Education Act is applied after all other federal and state aid for which the veteran is eligible has been applied. This act applies the tuition limitation before all other aid.

This act also repeals a provision that limits the amount of aid a veteran shall receive to the actual cost of attendance.

This act is identical to a provision contained in SCS/SB 968 (2016) and is substantially similar to HB 2156 (2016).
