Can you tell me where this bit is?
Because this amendment is HUGE...
Amendment no 3018
Seems like the video is a gross oversimplification of things, e.g.
"SEC. 561. ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR APPROVAL OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR PURPOSES OF EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE UNDER LAWS ADMINISTERED BY SECRETARY OF
DEFENSE AND SECRETARY OF VETERANS AFFAIRS.
(a) Automatic Approval by Secretary of Veterans Affairs of Degree Programs Approved by Secretary of Education.--Clause (i) of section
3672(b)(2)(A) of title 38, United States Code, is amended to read as follows:
``(i) A course that is described by section 3675(a) of this title.''.
(b) Approval by Secretary of Veterans Affairs of Non-Degree Programs Approved by Secretary of Education.--
...... yadda yadda
(D) in the heading for section 3675, by striking ``
accredited courses'' and inserting ``courses approved by Secretary of Education''.
Seems like you can only take accredited courses for a degree if the secretary of education approves that degree.
Also, what do you make of this?
"TITLE XI--CIVILIAN PERSONNEL MATTERS

striking `40' and inserting `60'.
(b) Construction- The amendment made by subsection (a) shall not be construed as affecting any applicable authorization or delimitation of the numbers

Experimental personnel for DARPA being added in with household pets?! Lol, now that seems about right.
