This article reports that the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee has approved the S. 1614 bill to extend authorization of programs under the Higher Education Act of 1965. The legislation includes provisions that would modify current law which delays or denies federal financial assistance to students with drug convictions. Under the bill, a ban would apply to those students who are convicted of possession of controlled substance while receiving federal aid, not to those with past convictions for drug possession. The bill would also prohibit the Department of Education from requiring students to disclose information about convictions for possession of controlled substance.
