Catching Up on HEA: An Update for #SAPros & #SAadvocates
It’s been a busy week on the Hill with several hearing related to reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA), initial due for reauthorization in 2013, in both the House and the Senate. Policymakers from both parties generally agree with NASPA’s overarching priorities related to HEA, though they differ in where they place the emphasis for why and how best to accomplish them. These differences become apparent in the details, which matter in any legislation, but with legislation as broad and far-reaching as HEA, there are a lot of details. Both Senator Alexander (R-TN), Chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, and Representative Bobby Scott (D-VA), Chair of the House Education and Labor Committee, have recently addressed the issues they expect to include in comprehensive HEA reauthorization bills to be introduced in spring 2019.
