Veterans would be able to attend state colleges for free under a bill filed by state Rep. James Arciero and supported by 59 his House and Senate colleagues.

Arciero said the bill, H3126, has been well-received so far, with questions about how much the program would cost the state.

Arciero testified Oct. 21 before the Joint Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs. Arciero has asked for a favorable recommendation, which moves the bill to the Ways & Means Committee for a full evaluation of the cost.

“I am proud that Massachusetts leads the nation in providing for veterans and their families and offers the most generous veterans’ benefits of any of the 50 states,” Arciero said in a statement. “We need to continue to strengthen our ability to care for our veterans and ensure all veterans in Massachusetts receive free public higher education.”
