Update on Education Jobs Bill

The Senate Appropriations Committee will markup the emergency supplemental appropriations bill this afternoon.  Staffers for Sen. Tom Harkin, chairman of the Labor, HHS, and Education subcommittee have revealed that Harkin plans to introduce S. 3206, Keep Our Educators Working Act of 2010, as an amendment on the floor. While there is no definitive timeline for when that will happen, the Senate could take up the supplemental on the floor as early as next week.  However, timing depends on completion of other bills, such as the financial reform bill, the tax extenders bill, and extension of Unemployment benefits and COBRA health insurance subsidies.
