Full Text of this Amendment

SA 2361. Mr. SCHUMER proposed an amendment to amendment SA 2341 submitted by Mr. SUNUNU to the amendment SA 2327 proposed by Mr. KENNEDY to the bill H.R. 2669, to provide for reconciliation pursuant to section 601 of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2008; as follows:

In the amendment strike all after the first word and insert the following:

It is the sense of the Senate that Congress should provide tax relief to help families afford the cost of higher education, including making tuition deductible against taxes, and eliminate wasteful spending, such as spending on unnecessary tax loopholes, in order to fully offset the cost and avoid forcing taxpayers to pay substantially more interest to foreign creditors; and that such relief should be provided on an appropriate legislative vehicle that won't jeopardize legislation providing greater
access and affordability to higher education for millions of students by subjecting the bill to a ``blue slip'' by the House.
