House Panel Approves Expansion of GI Bill Eligibility After Sparring over COVID Vaccine

Veterans who received a general discharge from the military for anything other than some serious crimes would be eligible for GI Bill benefits under a bill advanced by a House committee Tuesday.

The House Veterans Affairs Committee advanced the bill along largely party lines after lawmakers sparred over the military's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The bill, as introduced by Rep. Scott Fitzgerald, R-Wis., was originally intended to extend GI Bill benefits only to veterans who have been discharged for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, but the committee voted to replace Fitzgerald's proposal with a much broader one offered by committee Chairman Mark Takano, D-Calif.
