(KMOV.com) - U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill is backing a bill to protect veterans trying to get a college education.

The bill is meant to protect the student veterans in the event a college or university shuts down.

The push comes after for-profit college ITT Technical Institute closed its doors in September, leaving students in debt and without an education.

If the bill is passed, the legislation would restore educational assistance benefits spent at the institution.
