When the for-profit college closed, many veterans lost their GI benefits, along with their education credits

Senator Sherrod Brown isn't too worried about his challenger Josh Mandel, although he expects that he'll be outspent in the campaign.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – When ITT Technical Institutes closed, thousands of students across the country lost money, time and all of their education credits.

While federal student loans were forgiven – veterans were left out in the cold, and many lost thousands of dollars of their GI bill benefets

But Senator Sherrod Brown’s (D-OH) new law changes that.

Brown wrote part of a law that gives veterans back their GI benefits they lose when for-profit colleges close.

President Trump signed the bill into law this week.
