Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 1369 - Funds for International Business Studies in Honor of Maureen and Mike Mansfield

March 17, 1989

STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

(House)
(Williams (D) MT and Goodling (R) PA)

The Administration opposes H.R. 1369, which would authorize appropriations of $741,000 for a special grant to the University of Montana for an international business education program. This bill would inappropriately earmark funds for a specific institution for activities that are already supported through competitive, merit-based grants. With respect to this special grant, the Federal Government has already recognized the important contributions of Maureen and Mike Mansfield through a one-time 1984 grant of $5,000,000 for the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation.
