>The House Labor, Health and Human Services , Education and Related 
>Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee met this week and voted on 
>their 2007 Appropriations numbers.  I am happy to tell you that they 
>once again have voted to continue funding for the SE State Grant 
>program.  They "level funded" the program, which means the 
>appropriated amount is the same as we received for 2006 - $29.7 
>million. This is still down from the 2005 level, but given the 
>current economic climate, level funding is a good thing.  We will 
>continue to fight for more funding for SE in multiple venues, but we 
>will take it one step at a time.

>This bill has to be approved by the full Appropriations Committee 
>and then by the full House.  The Senate appropriators will soon 
>begin to work on their numbers.  I will get an alert out shortly 
>with talking points for letters to the Senate.

>Thanks for all the work you are doing to keep the SE issues before 
>your legislators.  Your contacts are paying off.
