RED TAPE ROLLBACK VICTORY: DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION WITHDRAWS PROPOSED K-12 RULE

Issues: Education

Yesterday, Rep. Todd Rokita and Rep. Virginia Foxx issued the following statement after the Department of Education withdrew its proposed “supplement, not supplant” regulation. Rep. Rokita is the Chairman of the Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education Subcommittee and Rep. Foxx is the Chairwoman of the Education and the Workforce Committee. The Department of Education’s proposed rule would have changed the longstanding requirement that federal funds supplement—not supplant—state and local funds, in stark contrast to the written intent of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Red Tape Rollback is Rep. Rokita’s signature regulatory reform program, which to date has secured over 60 victories on behalf of Hoosiers.
