Oversight Hearing on the Montgomery GI Bill. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Education, Training and Employment of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred First Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
This document reports the oral and written testimony of congressional representatives, officers of the branches of the active and reserve armed services, and college veterans' affairs officials on changes that need to be made to veterans' benefits. The testimony was given at a July 1990 House of Representatives oversight hearing on the Montgomery GI Bill. During the hearing, congressional representatives complained that too many veterans and reserves have to wait months to establish their educational benefits and to get their checks to pay for their schooling. The representatives asked the military officers for suggestions for remedying the situation, and suggestions were offered for improving the system. In addition, suggestions were made for increasing veterans' and reservists' benefits as an enticement for enlistment and because of rapidly rising educational costs. (KC)
