White House Releases State-by-State Data on Impact of Proposed GOP Budget
The White House has released state-by-state analysis of the impact of fiscal year (FY) 2013 budget resolution passed by House Republicans last week. The analysis outlines the consequences of the GOP budget on education for each state, including funding reductions for the Pell Grant and Federal Work Study Programs. NASFAA encourages members to use this information to gain a greater understanding of how the FY 2013 GOP budget plan would impact individual states and institutions.
Drafted by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI), the budget resolution outlines spending caps and would cut mandatory and discretionary funding for U.S. Department of Education programs by $9.5 billion in FY 2013. The GOP plan, which differs greatly from President Obama’s FY 2013 budget request, will not move forward as it stands no chance of passage in the Democratically-controlled Senate.
