This article reports on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. As it stands, the bill passed by the Republican majority in the House reauthorizes the Perkins Loan program, boosting loan limits and allowing students to borrow at a 5 percent fixed interest rate. It also raises the maximum Pell Grant by $200 to $6,000 and provides Pell Grant aid for students who attend college year-round.
