Senator Doug Jones is leading his colleagues in a push to renew funding for historically black colleges and universities.
Along with Senator Jon Tester of Montana, he called for the immediate passage of his bipartisan Future Act. The legislation would reauthorize $255 million per year in mandatory federal funding, for an additional two years. That funding expired on Sept. 30 with no Senate vote.
The House of Representatives has approved the legislation.
