Education – IDEA Full Funding Act Introduced in House

Reps. Jared Huffman (D-CA), David McKinley (R-WV), Timothy Walz (D-MN), David Reichert (R-WA), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), and John Katko (R-NY) introduced the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Full Funding Act (H.R. 2902). This bipartisan bill would increase spending over the next decade to bring the federal share of funding for special education up to 40 percent, the amount committed to when the law was first enacted in 1975. Currently the federal government currently covers 15.7 percent of these costs. The Arc supports this legislation.
