Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed seven bills into law today help military veterans. One bill allows veterans to receive lower in-state tuition rates at public colleges and universities in the state of Missouri after they leave the military.

Veterans are required to gain Missouri residency to receive the lower tuition rates. In order to obtain residency students must live in the state for 12 consecutive months, get a Missouri driver's license and earn two thousand dollars. Nixon spent the day promoting the measures at events in Springfield and Cape Girardeau.
