Stop Texas House Bill 3766 and maintain the current Hazelwood Act.

This petition had 33 supporters

Texas bill HB3766 contains revisions to the Hazelwood Act that will severely limit the number of veterans who will be eligible to use it in pursuit of a higher education. The Hazelwood Act works in conjunction with the GI Bill in the fact that it serves as a free educational benefit for veterans who were Texas residents at the time they entered military service.

Currently, a veteran must have served at least 180 days on active duty, with a qualifying discharge, to be eligible to use the Hazewood Act. If HB3766 is passed, the minimum time required on active duty to be eligible will be extended to 4 years.

Needless to say, 4 years is significantly longer than 180 days. That is an additional 3 1/2 years a service member will have to endure to receive the same benefit they should already be entitled to for their service and sacrifice to our country.

Please help us stop HB3766 in its tracks an give our veterans and service members the benefits they have earned through their honorable service to our country.
