This bill disqualified thousands of vets from getting federal assistance-- regardless of their needs. This year there has been a new act passed--The Student Financial As- sistance Technical Amendments of 2. This act will give veterans another chance to get Pell Grants because now only 1/3 of veterans benefits will be considered finan- cial aid. ACC's veteran’s advisor, Richard Counsellor, advises veterans who are confused or want to ask ques- _ tions to, see him, capable of performingin theatre. All - they need is a little encouragement.
