New bill helps veterans who lost benefits after ITT closed

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – When ITT Technical Institutes closed, thousands of students across the country lost money, time and all of their education credits.

While federal student loans were forgiven – veterans were left out in the cold, and many lost thousands of dollars of their GI bill benefets

But Senator Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) new law changes that.

Brown wrote part of a law that gives veterans back their GI benefits they lose when for-profit colleges close.

President Trump signed the bill into law this week.
