According to the press release by Mr. Larsen and Mr. Young, the measure would concentrate on four major things:
- Give colleges the ability to see each student-veteran’s amount of GI Bill or other educational benefits through eBenefits;
- Facilitate college planning, so veterans’ counselors or academic counselors could help veterans register for classes to complete their degree in the time covered by their allocated educational benefit;
- Allow veterans to opt out of sharing their educational benefit information with their college;
- Enact strict privacy protections for veterans so that their educational benefit information could only be used for education counseling purposes by the educational institution where the veteran is enrolled.
