Lamar Alexander says Senate Democrats Block Permanent Funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senate Democrats today blocked legislation offered by Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) that would permanently fund Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other Minority Serving Institutions.

“The right way to help Historically Black Colleges and Universities is to pass permanent funding for these institutions as part of a package of bills that I’ve introduced, which includes simplifying the FAFSA, a bill that Senator Doug Jones and I have introduced which will help 20 million families including almost every student at HBCUs. The package also includes Pell grants for prisoners and short-term Pell grants,” Alexander said on the Senate floor after Democrats offered to pass House-passed legislation that would only fund Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other Minority Serving Institutions for two years.
