      The announcement came September 23 following approval of the funding by the U. S. Senate Appropriations Committee, of which Dorgan is a member.

      Family housing is a primary need for students with families who attend UTTC and one of the priorities in college expansion plans.

      The housing funding is part of the Veteran's Affairs - Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2005.

      The bill goes next to the full Senate, which is expected to pass it soon.
