I want to remove Read-only file attributes from certain files under certain folders using built-in Windows group policy. I can do this manually using the attrib.exe command and maybe put in a vb script and push it out to every user via logon script, but if there's a built-in GPO approach that would be much easier to manage. Thanks!

You'll need to script that, I'm afraid.
You can only do this with a logon script if the users running the logon script have Change permissions for the file in question (or the Write Attributes right, to be precise).
Otherwise you'll need to make this a computer startup script, which is running in the system's security context.
