Senator Chuck Schumer is speaking at MCC about restoring funds for veterans assistance. 

He is discussing plans to restore and extend funding to the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program. The program provides tuition assistance to unemployed veterans in worker training programs. Current funding has run out. Schumer wants legislation passed that would restore program funding and extend all payments for several years.
