Two bills aimed at improving educational opportunities for Illinois veterans are now law.  Governor Pat Quinn signed a measure Saturday to extend tuition waivers for members of the National Guard from four years to six years.  

He also signed a bill to allow students using their GI Bill benefits to receive in-state tuition.  The tuition waiver applies to National Guard members who attend a state college and have served in the Illinois Guard for more than ten years.
