$100 billion plan to repair, upgrade schools passes key committee
from Education Week
The House education committee has backed legislation that would provide about $100 billion for school infrastructure. The vote in favor of the Rebuild America's Schools Act signalled committee Democrats' willingness to work quickly on one of their top declared priorities for this Congress — Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., the committee chairman, and other Democrats introduced the bill less than a month ago. The committee voted 26-20 to report the bill to the full House for consideration; however, their relatively quick work of the bill is far from a guarantee that its prospects are bright.
