In the rst half of the 111th Congress made signi cant prog-

on his or her leadership on the most critical issues facing
Iraq and Afghanistan veterans as determined by our national
membership.      ese grades are based on their votes and co-
sponsorship of IAVA Action’s legislative priorities published
and delivered to every Congressional o ce at the start of
2009 and 2010 and regularly reenforced by Congressional
testimony and appearances in the media.          e grades are
based entirely on these priorities and are blind to party and
ideology.

In the 111th there were few exceptional congressional leaders
on veterans’ issues with only 20 out of 535 legislators earning
an A+ for standing with IAVA Action on every issue. By
contrast, in IAVA Action’s 2008 Congressional Report Card
on the 110th Congress, more than 150 legislators earned a
perfect grade of an A+. is year too many legislators failed
to take action or show leadership on the key issues facing
new veterans.




Veterans and their families deserve real leadership and change
on the ground from their Congressional leaders.          ey did
their part, now it’s time for Congress to do theirs. It isn’t
too late for Congress to step up and take meaningful action.
When they convene for the lame duck session in November
2010 following the election, and before the 112th Congress
begins, we hope the 111th Congress will pass meaningful
legislation to ensure that veterans are able to nd quality em-
ployment, that disabled veterans get the bene ts they have
earned in an accurate, timely manner and that we upgrade
the Post 9/11 GI bill.

Every year is a new chance for Congress to live up to their
responsibility to veterans and their families. IAVA and IAVA
Action believe that these issues do not belong to any one
party, and both sides of the aisle must stand up for Ameri-
ca’s veterans. In 2011, we look forward to working with the
112th Congress on our next round of legislative priorities.

SUMMARY: Our work on the new GI Bill is not done. In
2008 Congress made a historic investment in our nations
newest veterans. However thousands of veterans were left
out of the Post 9/11 GI Bill. IAVA was a leader in develop-
ing an upgrade package to the New GI Bill, called New GI
Bill 2.0.    is legislation was one of IAVA Action’s top leg-
islative priorities in 2010. Although over 300,000 students
have already taken advantage of this historic new bene t,
tens of thousands of veterans are still being left behind. Too
many young veterans nd themselves unable to take advan-
tage of these GI Bill bene ts because they are attending
the wrong school and many others, already using the new
GI Bill, have had their bene ts cut by needlessly compli-
cated regulations. New GI Bill 2.0 o ers a comprehensive
approach to upgrading the Post-9/11 GI Bill by expand-
ing the bene t to include: 1) Vocational Training: Invalu-
able job training for students studying at vocational schools;
2) Title 32 AGR: Grant National Guard servicemembers
responding to national disasters full GI Bill credit; 3) Dis-
tance Learners: Provide living allowances for veterans in
distance learning programs.       e New GI Bill 2.0 will also
streamline and clarify the Post 9/11 GI Bill by removing tu-
ition and fee caps and expand the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Summary: Fighting veteran unemployment was one of
IAVA Action’s top legislative priorities in 2010. Unemploy-
ment rates among new veterans have risen signi cantly in
the last two years. In 2009, the average unemployment rate
for Iraq and Afghanistan-era veterans was 10.2%, up from
6.1% in 2007. e unemployment rate of Reserve and Na-
tional Guardsmen, who often leave behind civilian jobs or
their own business when they deploy, have more than qua-
drupled since 2007. In response IAVA Action supported two
bills that o ered unemployed veterans a meaningful chance
at nding quality employment. e “Veteran Employment
Assistance Act” (H.R.5120/S.3234) provides direct assis-
