Law that gives veterans free tuition may be in jeopardy
Kent Patteson has crammed a lot of life experience into his 26 years. "I've gone to Austin Community College, worked in the oil fields, run telecommunications," Patteson said. Now he is cramming for a career at Texas State University. "Before I was a Texas State student I was a Marine from 2007 to 2011," Patteson said. And that service entitles him to free tuition under the Hazelwood Act. In 2009, state lawmakers extended the Hazelwood Act to select spouses and children of military veterans.
