Federal Student Assistance: Legislative History, 95th Congress 2nd Session. Report No. 79-6 EPW.
Stedman, Jim
A chronology of the tuition tax credit legislation and a series of amendments to existing federal student aid programs during the second session of the 95th Congress is presented. In each chamber of Congress legislative activity proceded along four routes: (1) authorizing legislation from the education committees (amendments to existing student aid programs); (2) authorizing legislation from the tax committees (tuition tax credits); (3) concurrent resolutions from the budget committees (FY 1979 Congressional spending limits); and (4) legislation from the appropriations committees (FY 1979 budget). The final outcome of the legislative process was the Middle Income Student Assistance Act (P.L. 95-566) that amends the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program and the Guaranteed Student Loan Program to make them more accessible to middle-income students.
