GI Bill 2008 progress

The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act (H.R. 5740), an attempt to give returning war veterans the same benefits of the original GI Bill, introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative Bobby Scott (D-VA), passed on May 15, 2008. Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America lists who voted for and against.
Now the action moves to the Senate, where the equivalent measure (S-22) has 57 co-sponsors.
