ABSTRACT
The federal budget plan that emerged from U.S. House-Senate negotiations last week assumes billion-dollar spending increases for the two biggest K-12 programs next year, just as President George W. Bush requested. At the same time, lawmakers backed away from Senate language to secure nearly $4 billion to eliminate a Pell Grant shortfall. The House managed to squeeze the $2.4 trillion blueprint through on a largely party-line vote of 216-213 on May 20. But its fate remains uncertain in the Senate, where several Republican moderates have said they would join Democrats in voting no.
