THURGOOD MARSHALL COLLEGE FUND CALLS ON THE U.S. SENATE TO PASS THE FUTURE ACT AS A STAND-ALONE BILL

Washington, DC, Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- "The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) thanks Senate HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) for his recognition of the importance of both Title III, Part-F funding and the modernization of various aspects of our federal student-aid system.

While we appreciate the proposal for a longer-term or “permanent” solution to Title III, Part F, recent Congressional history suggests that such a proposal would not receive the requisite approval by both houses of Congress before the deadline for renewing Title III, Part F - September 30th - expires.  Therefore, it is imperative for the Senate to act with all deliberate speed on the bi-partisan and bi-cameral FUTURE Act as a stand-alone bill.  

Following the Senate’s passage of FUTURE Act, TMCF looks forward to working with leaders on both sides of the aisle to develop a longer-term solution for Title III, Part F and on other Higher Education Act-related priorities." Harry L. Williams, TMCF president & CEO.
