This Congressional report presents and examines the Veterans' Education and Employment Amendments of 1984.

Included in the report are the following: the text of the amendments, a discussion of their background, a summary of their main points, a section-by-section analysis, an estimate of their cost, and an analysis of the changes that they will effect in benefits paid to provide training and rehabilitation services to veterans with service-connected disabilities, to secure special assistance for educationally disadvantaged veterans, to fund educational programs pursued by veterans' survivors and dependents, and to obtain employment and training for disabled and Vietnam-era veterans.
