Lawmakers kill off controversial plan to limit GI Bill benefits transfer to spouses, children | Military Times

A new defense bill moving to the Senate would put an end to the hotly debated GI Bill restrictions after being accepted by the House in a 377-48 vote. This would cancel out the recently imposed plans that prevent those with more than 16 years of post-9/11 service from transferring their paid-for GI Bill to their spouse or children. Many claimed this punished those who stayed in until retirement, with defense officials saying it was a “recruiting incentive.” President Trump has openly displayed his agreement with the general public and supports the new bill to end the GI Bill restrictions.
