30 teenth birthday to register with the United States selective service system.

32 eral student financial assistance and eligibility for employment within the
33 executive branch of the federal government to persons who are in compliance
34 with the requirements of the federal military selective service act.

40 cial assistance for postsecondary education funded by state revenue, including

3 tary selective service act.

14 agencies, institutions and instrumentalities.
