New Policies

Cadets who leave the Air Force Academy after being victims of sexual assaults could find it easier to return to the school. House and Senate negotiators have agreed to legislation that allows former cadets to return under certain circumstances.

The readmission policy is just one of several changes that have
been added to the bill.

A spokesman for Republican Senator Wayne Allard says some cadets
have contacted his office asking to return to the academy. Spokesman Sean Conway says cadets drummed out of the academy because of a sexual assault or rape, or who've seen grades fall because of personal issues, should be able to return after addressing those issues.
