Secretary Arne Duncan's Statement on Passage of Health Insurance Reform Bill

Justin Hamilton, (202) 401-1576

Last night's vote on the health care bill was historic in many ways. It was a big victory for Americans who need quality, affordable health care. It also provides financial aid to millions of students to help realize their dream of a college education. The health care portion of the bill is headed to President Obama, and I look forward to working with the Senate this week so the education bill is ready for the President's signature.
