On July 19, 2007, the House of Represenatives passed the Labor, Health and Human Services and Education fiscal year (FY) 2008 budget bill (H.R. 3043) (H. Rept. 110-231, page 236), by a vote of 276-140.
The bill includes $119.79 million for the Teaching American History grants program at the U.S. Department of Education, the same amount provided in FY ’07.
This amount is $210,000 less than approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee (S. 1710) (S. Rept 110-107, page 231). However, the House amount is $69.79 million more than the President’s request.
