WASHINGTON -- The Senate Appropriations Committee approved legislation yesterday that would fund the HOME program and environmental revolving loan fund programs in fiscal 1995 at higher levels than those approved by House lawmakers last month.

The Senate committee's bill would give $1.5 billion to the HOME program next year, compared with $1.275 billion in the House Appropriations Committee's bill and $1.1 billion requested by the Clinton Administration in its fiscal 1995 budget plan. HOME received $1.25 in fiscal 1994. The fiscal year begins Oct. 1.
