The House of Representatives passed the Student Aid and Fiscal
Responsibility Act on Thursday on a mostly party-line vote of 253 to
171 (roll call here). Iowa Democrats Bruce Braley, Dave Loebsack and
Leonard Boswell all voted for the bill, while Republicans Tom Latham
and Steve King voted against it. ... (T)he House Education and Labor
Committee's estimates on how many students in each Congressional
district will be able to receive Pell Grants during the 2010/2011
academic year under this reform. The estimate is 16,355 students in
Iowa's fourth district (Latham) and 16,301 students in Iowa's fifth
district (King). Overall, just four Democrats voted against the bill:
Allen Boyd (FL-02), Paul Kanjorski (PA-11), Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin
(SD-AL), and Mike McMahon (NY-13).
