Lawmakers push college credit for veterans

– Military veterans working toward a degree could have help if an amendment approved in the Indiana Senate moves forward.

Lawmakers approved an amendment Monday that would require state colleges and universities to give credit to veterans who pass equivalency exams or take courses while in the service.

The bill aims to encourage veterans to become teachers and also would require state colleges give financial aid to veterans accepted to the program.

Amendment author state Sen. Jim Banks of Columbia City said in a statement that the bill would give veterans a chance to apply their experience in the field toward a degree.

The amended bill is set to move to the full Senate this week. Both the full House and governor must also approve the bill before it becomes law.
