VSOs Opposition to Section 201 of HR 5649

Good Afternoon,

HR 5649 The Representative Arrington TAP Bill contains a strongly opposed provision (Section 201) which diminishes the current VA approved College education and Aviation training for veterans seeking careers as pilots. The provision is problematic, but not as problematic as the way the Committee staff on HVAC proceeded, it has come to my attention the letters of opposition were not shared with the Chairman and hearing notice that Section 201 (previously HR 4149 a bill that was going nowhere) was not provided. We had a deficient opportunity to broadly express dissent before a mini omnibus veteran job bill was forwarded to the House floor.

I would ask that this provision be opposed by your office and this provision be dropped from the bill or we meet at your earliest convenience to discuss.

Cheers,

Mike
