MOUNT VERNON — A bipartisan effort co-sponsored by Sen. Sherrod Brown to expand education opportunities for veterans has passed the U.S. Senate and is headed for President Donald Trump’s desk for his signature.

Brown spoke about the bill at a telephone press conference Tuesday. At that time, it has passed the House and the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. It was passed by the full Senate late Tuesday afternoon.
