A Kansas House committee has approved a bill allowing all military veterans to pay the lower tuition rates at state universities normally reserved for Kansas residents.
The tuition break already applies to veterans who live in Kansas for two years during their military service and establish a home in the state within 30 days of leaving the military. Veterans save about $4 million in tuition costs a year.
The measure endorsed Monday by the House Education Budget Committee extends the in-state tuition break to all veterans.
The bill goes next to the House Appropriations Committee for review.
