SAN DIEGO (CN) – U.S. Representatives Susan Davis and Mike Levin – chairs of House subcommittees on education and labor and Veterans’ Affairs – hosted a joint hearing Wednesday on how to protect student veterans from for-profit institutions in light of enforcement and oversight rollbacks by the Trump administration.

Davis, who chairs the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development, and Levin, who chairs the Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity were joined by fellow Democrats – Rep. Mark Takano, the Veterans’ Affairs chair, and Rep. Susie Lee – for a hearing on protecting student veterans from predatory practices by for-profit educational institutions.

Prior to the start of the hearing, Tokano said “broken promises” to veterans regarding their benefits is the “single greatest threat” to volunteer military service.
