Hagan Questions Military About Cancelled Tuition Assistance Program

Tuesday we told you about the suspension of the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts program that provides tuition assistance to spouses of members of the military. Now U.S. Democratic Senator Kay Hagan wants to know how Congress can help the Department of Defense address the program's budget problems.

Thursday Hagan questioned military leadership in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing about the recent suspension.

The program began in March 2009 to offer up to $6,000 in tuition grants to military spouses in college or career training. The program has grown in popularity, and the Department of Defense has said it was shut down due to overwhelming enrollment in late February.
