    It would have to go to the House and then the President for approval. Not sure if that will happen. This is particularly important for enlisted. Many have joined the military at 18, 19 or 20. They use the money to take courses online or at nearby colleges. It is the opportunity for many to begin college. $4500 seems very little when compared to what many of us have spent on full time tuition each year. But when you look at the salary rates for enlisted it can be a great deal of money. Keep in mind many are supporting their own families.
