Hazlewood Act Exemption

The purpose of the Hazlewood Act Exemption is to provide an education benefit to honorably discharged or separated Texas veterans and to eligible dependent children and spouses of Texas veterans. A 2009 act added the provision to permit eligible veterans to assign their unused hours to their child (Hazlewood Legacy Act). Learn more here.
