"[T]he Veterans' Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 (HR 3230) requires [public] institutions to charge in-state tuition to veterans—regardless of how long they have lived in the state—within three years of the veterans’ discharge from active duty. Some dependents of veterans would also be eligible for the resident rates. Universities that do not offer the reduced rates could become ineligible to receive federal veteran-education dollars."
But ... "Some public colleges say the new law will force institutions to shoulder an expensive burden. In June the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities implored Congress to let public institutions set their own prices, calling the tuition measure 'essentially an allocation of state, not federal, resources.'"
