Lamar Alexander, a member of the committee, invited McKinney to participate in the hearing "A Year-Round College Calendar: Advantages and Impediments." The Tennessee senator will chair the hearing, during which members will examine ways, either through regulatory changes or the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, to make student financial aid more amenable to a year-round system.
