(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Wayne DeAngelo, Craig Coughlin and Celeste Riley to create a commission tasked with studying and making recommendations to the governor and the Legislature on how to best facilitate the successful transition of veterans into higher education was approved earlier this week by an Assembly committee.
"Transitioning into college life can be an overwhelming experience for new students, never mind veterans who are still adjusting to civilian life," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "This commission would be essential in helping us better understand the challenges faced by returning soldiers and the type of policies that must be put in place to help facilitate their college pursuits."
