Simon Bill Included in Advancing America’s Priorities Act (S. 3297)

On June 24th the American Council on Education sent a letter to the Senate to encourage support for the Senator Paul Simon Study Abroad Foundation Act of 2007. The Simon bill was included with 35 other bills into what is being called the “Coburn Omnibus” bill. All of these bills were included into one bill by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) as a way to work around Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) who has used “holds” to stop legislation he is opposed to.
