House Vote Puts Pell Grants in Peril

Statement from Lauren Asher on the January 25 House vote which passed Resolution 38 and directs the Chairman of the House Budget Committee to cut non-security discretionary spending to 2008 levels or less. Cutting funding to 2008 levels would lower the maximum Pell Grant from $5,550 today to $4,000 or even less for Fall 2011.
