On February 13, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the Senator Paul Simon Study Abroad Foundation Act, which would expand nearly fivefold the number of college students who participate in overseas education.  The House of Representatives approved the bill last June.  It was introduced by the late Rep. Tom Lantos, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.  The legislation creates a foundation whose goal is to send one million American students abroad each year within the next 10 years.  Currently, only about 225,000 U.S. students study overseas annually.  The bill would authorize an appropriation of $80-million annually for the foundation.  The legislation now must pass the full Senate.
