Tentative Timeline for HEA Conference Committee

The House recently passed its own version of the Higher Education Reauthorization Act (HEA) and the bill was to be sent off to conference committee for the House and Senate to work out their many differences. Because of Congress’s two-week spring recess in March and the concomitant inability to pass it before the legislators leave town, they will likey not complete conference work until April.
