Higher Ed Markup:

On Tuesday, the House Education and Labor Committee will markup the Democrat's proposal for reauthorizing the Higher Education Act (HEA). The $400 billion proposal would increase Pell Grants and seek to make community college tuition-free, though it doesn’t go as far some of the plans proposed by 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. Despite Tuesday's markup, a reauthorization of HEA is not expected this Congress. ABC will continue to work with the House and Senate to ensure any final product includes ABC-supported measures.
