Congress and MOAA pan new MyCAA Rules

From the MOAA newsletter echoing the concerns of military spouses about the new rules for MyCAA:

"Congress Pans MyCAA Rules
Last week, we reported MOAA's strong disagreement with the Pentagon's decision to make military spouses of career members ineligible for the popular Military Spouse Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) program.
On Tuesday, the Chair and Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee sent a bipartisan letter to Secretary Gates echoing our concerns that the new rules "send the wrong message" and "fail to achieve the objectives [Congress intended] for this program." With Congressional support, MOAA hopes to find a way to reopen this important program to career spouses while also accommodating fiscal constraints."
