Wed, 02 Jul 2014 07:25:04 GMT — Governor Rick Snyder has signed a law re-establishing a state-based tuition assistance program for members of the Michigan National Guard. It will cover 100 percent of tuition and fees, up to $4,500 a year. The state had a similar program for a decade that ended in 2009 because of budget cuts and expanded federal education benefits after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Supporters say Michigan's program will help soldiers whose tuition and fees aren't fully covered by a similar federal tuition-assistance program. It's expected to cost Michigan about $4.7 million in the next fiscal year. Snyder signed the bill Tuesday during an event at the Michigan National Guard Joint Force Headquarters in Lansing.
