SECTION 1. Section 19 of chapter 15A of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after the third paragraph, the following new paragraph:—
Such guidelines shall provide tuition and fee waivers for veterans of Massachusetts, as defined in clause 43 of section 7 of chapter 4 of the General Laws, and active duty servicepersons who are permanent and legal residents of the commonwealth and whose educational costs for attending a public institution of higher education, as defined in section 5, are not fully covered by Title 38, U.S. Code, Section 3675, CFR 21.4253.
