IM1 Impacted School Aid Boost OKd by House WASHINGTON Ml -- The H o u s e Wednesday ndded $15.7 million to the program of federal aid for school districts that serve children of federal employes. ·The money, added to a $447.5 million supplemental appropriation bill, would re store a cut in the program made by Congress last year. It is for the remainder of the fiscal year ending June 30. 1962. The bill was sent to the Senate by voice vote. PRESIDENT Kennedy did not ask for the extra school- aid funds. The administra tion has been trying to cut down the program, known as the impacted-arcas program n hope$ of getting a general school-aid bill. The amendment to add $15.7 million for the school rogram was offered by Rep. Mward P. Boland, D-Mass. Its acceptance was urged by Rep. Albert Thomas, D Tex., who handled the supple mental appropriation bill. He called the impacted aid pro ;ram "the most popular pro;ram In the House." The House defeated an at tempt by Rep. Frank T. Bow, R-Ohio, to limit the additional school aid to districts serving children who actually live on federal property. A voice vote rejected the motion, which would have cut the $15.7 million to well under $1 million THE $15.7 million was add ed to $231 million already appropriated for the current fiscal year to help federally Impacted school areas defray the costs of operation and maintenance. An appropriation of abpul $70 million for construction costs was not involved in Wednesday's action. A spokesman for the Long Beach Unified School District one of the federally impactci areas, Wednesday night said the additional $15.7 million appropriation had been an tlcipatcd, and the district hai included Us small share o the added revenue in its fi nancial plans.
