The article reports on the decision of the House and Senate appropriations committee to maintain the funding for the program, Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) in the U.S. The EETT program received a reprieve when the Congress agreed on a plan to fund most education programs for 2007 at 2006 levels while raising overall federal spending for education by $1.17 billion. However, the program was eliminated again in the discretionary spending plan of President George W. Bush for fiscal 2008.
