House Passes Education Bill on Party Lines


On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a college affordability measure, but only after a partisan fight about whether the bill would help students according to an Associated Press report republished in MyWestTexas.com. The result was an unusually divisive update of the Higher Education Act, the law aimed at making a college education more affordable. The focus now turns to the Senate, which is working on its own legislation. The House approved its bill, 221-199, in a near party-line vote.
