Many public health organizations have been hard at work trying to garner 40 signatures on a letter that Harkin spearheaded in support of the PPH Fund and not using it to offset the costs to stabilize the federal student loan interest rate.  Both the Republican measure (which used PPH as the offset) and the Democratic measure failed yesterday afternoon to get the needed 60 votes for passage.  Senator Webb (D-VA) was the only Democrat to vote no on the Democratic bill.
