The three-year measure authorizes annually $180 million in grants lo four-year colleges, $12(1 million in loans for the same instiiulions, $50 million in grants for public junior colleges, and $25 million the first year plus $60 million each the second and third for grants to graduate schools. The programs would be on a matching basis. The grants would be limited to buildings to be used for instruction of research in the natural and physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and modern foreign languages, and for libraries. These restrictions were written in because many legislators felt that across-the-board grants were unconstitutional under the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibit Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion. < Supporting the college aid bill were 37 Democrats and 17 Republicans, while 17 Democrat and 10 Republican voted no.
