Recognizing the sacrifices made by the families of Pennsylvania National Guard members, the House approved legislation to provide them with education benefits.

House Bill 1324 would extend the current Pennsylvania National Guard Military Education Program by including a Guard member’s spouse or child in this benefit program.

The benefit would pay for 10 semesters/quarters, or five years equivalent, at the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education tuition rate.

The Guard member could earn these educational benefits for his or her spouse or children by committing to a second obligation of six years with the Pennsylvania National Guard. This would help retain current National Guard members and attract transitioning military service members to Pennsylvania while also supporting Guard families, says PA Rep. Rosemary Brown.

The bill now moves to the Senate for its consideration.
