The American Graduation Initiative (AGI) passed the House in September as part of the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsiblity Act (H.R. 3221). The Senate is expected to introduce and act on legislation soon.

David Baime, AACC Vice President for Government Relations, detailed the contents of the Senate bill and informed about how to influence the final version of this crucial legislation. Learn the differences between the House and Senate legislation on key issues such as the structure of the AGI grant programs, accountability measures, and allowable uses of renovation and construction funds.

The voices of community colleges will be vital in the final stages of this legislative debate, so get up to speed on all the issues!
