Trump Administration Budget Amendment Would Use Surplus Pell Grant Funds for NASA, Other Priorities

The Associated Press (AP) reports that a new budget amendment sent by the Trump administration to Congress yesterday would use a nearly $2 billion Pell Grant surplus to fund the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and other federal priorities.

Congress would need to approve the budget proposal in order for it to go into effect.
