The Idaho Senate approved a measure that would allow veterans from anywhere in the U.S. to relocate to Idaho and receive in-state tuition at a state university or college. The change could save a veteran up to $10,000 a year in tuition costs.
“This is an additional tool to help those veterans that have served at least two years and are separated under honorable conditions,” said Diane Bilyeu, D-Pocatello. She said she sponsored the legislation after talking with veterans at an event at Idaho State University last year. Her measure now heads to the House.
