APSCU Applauds House Passage of Veterans' Education Bill; Urges President to Sign

Washington, D.C. – Former Congressman Steve Gunderson, the president and chief executive officer of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) today issued the following statement applauding House passage of the Improving Transparency of Education Opportunities for Veterans Act of 2012 (H.R. 4057):

"With House passage of H.R. 4057, we are one step away from providing veterans with the counseling and transparency they need to make informed decisions about their education. We again thank Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) for his leadership on this issue, as well as all of his colleagues who have supported this legislation especially the members of the House Veterans Affairs Committee. We urge the President to act quickly in signing this legislation on behalf of the 212,000 veterans who attend private sector colleges and universities."

PSCUs open doors to many of the 9 million unemployed and 90 million undereducated Americans by providing a skills-based education. To remain competitive over the next decade, we must identify between 8 and 23 million new workers with postsecondary skills. PSCUs are a necessary part of that solution, having produced over 800,000 degrees last year alone.
