Follow through Amendments of 1983. Mr. Perkins, from the Committee on Education and Labor, Submitted the Following Report together with Supplemental Views (To Accompany H. R. 2148), (Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office). House of Representatives, 98th Congress, 1st Session, Report No. 98-160.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The Committee on Education and Labor strongly recommends the adoption of H. R. 2148, a bill that, with two major additions, would basically reenact Project Follow Through for an additional year as it is currently authorized under the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1981. The two additions would provide for review and evaluation of what has been learned from Follow Through during the past 15 years. Substantial sections in this report provide (1) an introduction briefly describing the origin of Project Follow Through and providing a rationale for its extension; (2) a description of the legislative history of the project; (3) a discussion of legislation considered by the committee; (4) the Congressional Budget Office cost estimate for the proposed extension; and (5) changes in existing law made by the bill. Sections of Title I of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, Title VI of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981, and Title VIII of the Native American Programs Act of 1974 are included. These sections focus, respectively, on Follow Through, community services, and Native American programs. (RH)
