Attorneys general in more than 20 states sent a letter Tuesday urging Congressional leaders to tighten federal rules in ways that could limit the ability of some for-profit colleges to enroll military service members and veterans using government aid. The letter, signed by 21 attorneys general and one state consumer protection official, calls on Congress to enact legislation that would count military and veterans' education aid along with Education Department student grants for the purposes of a federal rule that requires for-profit colleges to derive at least 10 percent of their revenues from sources other than federal aid. Right now military and veterans' educational aid is excluded from that total. Changes in the rule are unlikely given the current makeup of Congress.
