FY 2009 Omnibus Spending Bill Passes in House...what's in it for education?
See attached a summary from Washington Partners of the Fiscal Year 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act passed in the House 2/25.
If you recall from past Ed. Reports, this Bill was scheduled to be signed in the fall by President Bush. It failed to reach the President's desk when the Democratic majority refused to accept his spending proposal. The Congress passed a Continuing Resolution that would extend funding through March 6, by which time they will be expected to pass an appropriations bill that will cover the rest of the fiscal year.
