The article reports on the legislation approved by the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Education, Arts and the Humanities that denies federal financial aid to students having D and F averages. The author stated that a legislation approved by the House differs from the Senate bill since it does not require students to maintain a C average to qualify for federal aid. However, the Senate bill does not establish a single needs analysis test for all federal financial aid programs unlike the House bill.
