WASHINGTON — Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Pa., is urging the Treasury Department to reconsider treating the District of Columbia, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico as large school districts when allocating qualified school construction bonds because they prevented the Pittsburgh-area school district he represents from receiving an allocation.

In a two-page letter dated June 5 but not made public until Wednesday, Doyle told Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that he had “grave concerns” about how the first $11 billion of QSCBs were allocated to states and large school districts, and encouraged the department to reconsider their allocation methods for the remaining $11 billion.
