Tuition discount

One of the bills winning bipartisan support would extend the sunset on a current program giving a tuition discount at Maryland colleges and community colleges to veterans who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. The bill would extend the sunset to June 30, 2020. It is scheduled to expire in 2016. Above, Staff Sgt.
