President Reagan has signed two major education measures into law and has until Oct. 31 to sign a third.

The President on Oct. 19 signed P.L. 98-524, a five-year reauthorization for vocational-education programs that calls for $950 million in the current fiscal year, and P.L. 98-511, an omnibus bill that reauthorizes 10 programs for over $1 billion.

The omnibus bill, to which the Office of Management and Budget reportedly objected, reauthorized funds for impact aid, women's educational equity, the National Center for Education Statistics, and programs in adult, bilingual, Indian, and migrant education.

The third bill, S 2565, a reauthorization for Head Start and Follow Through, includes over $200 million in new education programs.
