On July 30, 2009, the Senate Full Appropriations Committee passed HR 3293, the Senate FY 2010 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education funding bill out of the Committee.
The Senate has not yet taken the bill to the Senate floor, and that will not occur until after Senators return from their summer recess. After this next step, the House and Senate will have to go to Conference to resolve the differences in funding levels and policy proposals between the House and Senate version of FY 2010 funding for education.
There are several new initiatives proposed by the Senate, and some revamping of existing programs so the whole story is not told strictly in the dollar levels but also by the policies.
