Petitioning Texas State Senator Sen. Donna Campbell and 10 others

The State of Texas Governor and Legislature: Keep the Hazlewood Act as a Texas education benefit for veterans.

The Hazelwood Act is a promise that the State of Texas made to military veterans since World War II. The Hazlewood Act provides qualified Veterans, spouses, and dependent children with an education benefit of up to 150 hours of tuition exemption, including most fee charges, at public institutions of higher education in Texas. Recently, legislation allowed qualified veterans to pass their credit hours onto their children. This creates diversity at Texas universities and colleges, brings highly educated people into the Texas workforce, and honors our veterans service and sacrifice by enabling them to achieve college graduation, thus helping to prevent veteran unemployment in Texas. This program has created thousands of opportunities for Texas veterans and their families.
