House Committee Approves $71 Billion Education Funding Bill in Meeting Dominated by Fate of Separated Migrant Children, Increases Money to School Safety Programs


The House Appropriations Committee, after a day-long markup dominated by concerns for immigrant children separated from their parents, approved a $71 billion spending bill for the Education Department.

The most notable change adopted during the committee’s consideration was boosting funding for the School Safety National Activities program. The committee’s first draft of the bill would have funded the grants at $43 million; the committee upped funding to $90 million, the same as it received last year.
