Here's a Discussion that is Going On.  There is a lot of concern being expressed over the PSEO language in the Omnibus Education Policy bill (HF 2397) and the Senate will likely be taking up the conference committee report on the bill this afternoon.  This article gives a pretty good perspective on the "pro" side of the argument.  The key arguments against the provision--appropriate use of public money/quality of post-secondary courses taken by students--kind of get short shrift.

Anyway:  http://www.minnpost.com/learning-curve/2014/05/education-advocates-embroiled-11th-hour-battle-over-post-secondary-gag-rule?utm_source=MinnPost+e-mail+newsletters&utm_campaign=45c8b84fb1-5_13_2014_Daily_Newsletter5_13_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3631302e9c-45c8b84fb1-123346838

Supplemental Appropriations Bill.  The targets have been set, but the conference committee on the supplemental appropriations has yet to meet today.  It is expected that they will meet and it is hoped that at least some of the funding "skeleton" will be filled in.  I will certainly let you know if and when things proceed.
