This document contains the report of the Committee on Education and Labor on bill H.R. 2908 to amend Title XI of the Education Amendments of 1978 relating to Indian education programs. The document contains a summary of the legislation, a description of the need for the legislation, its legislative history, a cost estimate, and a section-by-section analysis of the bill. The report delineates changes in existing law made by the bill. Major provisions of the bill simplify reporting requirements prior to school closures. The bill deletes provisions limiting the ability to take action against Bureau of Indian Affairs administrators for failure to implement Bureau standards and transferring the responsibility for the administration of contracts. This document clarifies that nothing in the 1984 amendments requires the provision of separate support services and inserts a provision authorizing advance funding, which can be used instead of the 1984 provision on forward funding. Finally, the report clarifies the policy affecting requirements on a number of the other 1984 provisions. The document contains the full text of the proposed legislation. (DHP)
