         Mr. Takano, from the Committee on Veterans' Affairs,

                          SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT

                        [To accompany H.R. 1947]

     CORRECTION--HOUSE REPORT, SECTION-BY-SECTION ANALYSIS OF THE 
                              LEGISLATION

    Pursuant to clause 3(a)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of the Representatives for the 116th Congress, the 
Committee on Veterans' Affairs is filing this supplemental 
report to correct an error in the report to accompany H.R. 
1947, to amend title 38, United States Code, to exempt 
transfers of funds from Federal agencies to the Department of 
Veterans Affairs for nonprofit corporations established under 
subchapter IV of chapter 73 of such title from certain 
provisions of the Economy Act (H. Rept. 116-76).
    Section 2. Improvements to Assistance for Certain Flight 
Training and Other Programs of Education.
           Section 2(a) would amend section 3034(d) of 
        title 38, U.S.C. to remove the prohibition on the use 
        the of G.I. Bill funds to pay for training that leads 
        to a private pilot's license.
           Section 2(b) would amend section 3313 by 
        adding a new subsection (l).
           The new 3313(l)(1) would authorize that 
        participants using educational assistance through 
        chapter 33 of title 38, U.S.C. for flight training at 
        an institute of higher learning or vocational school 
        may elect to receive accelerated tuition and fee 
        payments that would be equal to double the amount 
        authorized by section 3313(c) or the cap on tuition and 
        fees at a non-public institution of higher learning. 
        This payment would not be allowed to exceed the total 
        cost of tuition and fees for the flight training 
        program. This subsection would also clarify that living 
        stipend payments would not be accelerated by this 
        change. The new section 3313(l)(2) would require that 
        before a participant makes an election to accelerate 
        training through this section they would have to 
        receive educational counseling under section 3697A(a) 
        of title 38, U.S.C. The new section 3313(l)(3) would 
        authorize that the charge against the participant's 
        entitlement to educational assistance will be charged 
        at a cost of two months for each month the accelerated 
        payment is made.
           Section 2(c) would amend section 
        3313(c)(1)(A) of title 38, U.S.C., to subject flight 
        training at public schools to the cap on tuition and 
        fees established by 3313(c)(1)(A)(ii) of title 38, 
        U.S.C. Under this provision, students would not be 
        allowed to take flight training courses unless the 
        training is specifically required to obtain their 
        degree.
           Section 2(d) would amend section 
        3313(c)(1)(A)(ii)(II) of title 38, U.S.C., as added by 
        the previous section to subject any program of 
        education pursued at a public institution of higher 
        learning in which the school enters into a contract or 
        agreement with another entity to provide the program of 
        education, or a portion of the program, to the cap 
        established by 3313(c)(1)(A)(ii)(II) of title 38, 
        U.S.C.
           Section 2(e) would require that the changes 
        that would be made by this section apply to any 
        quarter, semester, or term commencing on or after 
        enactment of the bill and that the new rules would not 
        go into effect for current students that would be 
        impacted by this section for two additional years 
        following enactment.
