Congressional committee to discuss federal education budget
Date Posted: 4/28/2014
The U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce is scheduled to meet tomorrow, April 29, at 9 a.m. CST for a hearing entitled “Reviewing the President’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Proposal for the Department of Education.” The hearing will give members of the committee an opportunity to review President Obama's education budget request. Secretary Arne Duncan will testify and be available to answer any members' questions during the hearing. Congress is currently working on appropriations measures to fund the government for 2015. Secretary Duncan appeared before a House Appropriations subcommittee earlier this month to discuss his budget. The Committee on Appropriations will ultimately be responsible for drafting legislation to fund the Department of Education and its various programs in fiscal year 2015.
