A new report has cast a bad light on the GI bill funding, and Senator Chris Murphy wants to make a change.

   The GI bill provides veterans with nearly $20,000 a year to pursue an education.

   But a report by the Senate committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions found that some for profit colleges are abusing the bill.

   Sen. Murphy says a lack of oversight allows the colleges to collect GI money with poor results for veterans, such as high withdrawal rates from school, and loan defaults.
