At President Obama's urging, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an $819 billion economic stimulus bill January 28 that provides significant new sums of money for education.
While the full Senate must also vote on the legislation, known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Senate Appropriations Committee has approved education provisions similar to the House version, and Obama has expressed optimism the full package will be sent to him for signature before Congress begins its mid-February recess.
