House Passes REMOTE Act, Including Technical Corrections to Amend Isakson-Roe Veterans Bill

The House on Wednesday passed the Responsible Education Mitigating Options and Technical Extensions (REMOTE) Act, one of two pieces of legislation recently introduced in Congress aimed at making key technical improvements to the Isakson-Roe Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act.

Introduced by Reps. David Trone (D-Md.), Andy Levin (D-Mich.) and Mark Takano (D-Calif.), the REMOTE Act includes changes to help institutions satisfy the Isakson-Roe bill’s consumer information requirements by using the College Financing Plan template and ensures student veterans can continue to receive their education benefits, in addition to extending some coronavirus-related flexibilities previously granted to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amid the pandemic.

The legislation will now go before the Senate for a vote.
