         Congress to increase spending on Pell Grants.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i30/30a03402.htm

      *  THE DEMOCRATS' PLAN: Legislation would raise the maximum Pell
         Grant to $7,000 over a three-year period and double federal
         financing for institutions with large minority enrollments.
