On Friday July 24, 2009 the House considered H.R. 3293: Department of Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations for FY 2010. This legislation provides additional funding for Title I grants and for underperforming schools. It invests in employment training for those who have lost jobs in this difficult economy and additional funding to help states cover unemployment insurance obligations. H.R. 3293 increases funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct biomedical research and provides resources to help train health care workers where there are shortages. I voted YES. H.R. 3293 passed and the entire vote is recorded below:
