In this video press release, Assemblyman Robert Andrzejczak (D-Cape May) discusses his legislation that would allow military veterans attending a public college or university in New Jersey to pay in-state tuition rates.
Andrzejczak’s bill (A-2622), entitled the “New Jersey Tuition Equality for America’s Military (NJTEAM) Act” would allow any honorably discharged military veteran living in New Jersey to be considered a state resident for the purposes of paying in-state tuition at any of the state’s public two- and four-year colleges or universities.
Andrzejczak himself is a veteran. He served in the U.S. Army, attaining the rank of Sergeant before being wounded during a 2008 deployment in Iraq. His convoy was hit by an anti-tank grenade, injuring Andrzejczak and resulting in the loss of his left leg.
