Business Roundtable Statement on the FUTURE Act

December 19, 2019

Washington – Business Roundtable today issued the following statement regarding the President’s signing of the FUTURE Act:

“Business Roundtable applauds Chairman Alexander and Ranking Member Murray in the Senate and Chairman Scott and Ranking Member Foxx in the House for their leadership in championing the bipartisan FUTURE Act. We are pleased to see President Trump sign this important legislation into law today.
“The FUTURE Act permanently authorizes funds to support historically black colleges and universities and other minority-serving institutions. These funds help support student services such as mentoring and career counseling and expands critical STEM initiatives at these institutions. The law will also make it much easier for students and their families to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which will allow more Americans to seek federal student aid to support their postsecondary education.”
