House of Representatives Passes Education Appropriations Bill; Senate Committee to Begin Its Work on July 28

On July 24, by a vote of 264 to 153, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education appropriations bill, which would provide the U.S. Department of Education with $64.2 billion in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010, a $1.3 billion increase over FY 2009.

The version passed in the House was basically unchanged from the version approved by the House Appropriations Committee on July 17 and the House Labor, Health and Human Services (HHS), and Education Appropriations Subcommittee on July 10.

The Senate Labor, HHS, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee is expected to mark up its version of the bill on July 28, with consideration by the full Senate Appropriations Committee possibly occurring as soon as July 30.

To review funding levels for education programs that benefit middle and high schools for FY 2009, as well as proposed funding levels for FY 2010, please consult the chart  here.
