Washington, D.C. – “The House speaker Nancy Pelosi has been badgering the GOP to pass her $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill to ‘crush the virus, so that we can reopen the economy and our schools safely.’ Yet her bill would do almost nothing to achieve those goals,” Betsy McCaughey writes in the New York Post.
“Her bill would rewrite election law for 2020, barring voter-ID requirements” and making other changes that have nothing to do with relief for workers.”

Franklin, TN – Representative Mark Green sent a letter to Secretary Betsy DeVos urging the Department of Education to waive high stakes testing requirements for the 2020-2021 school year. Green said:
“Requiring high stakes testing during a pandemic is both unnecessary and counterproductive. In hard times like these, we must go the extra mile to support our students and teachers who are struggling, rather than burdening them.”
“Teachers, students, and parents quickly adapted in the wake of this pandemic, and our education system must do the same. I join the ranks of families and schools across the country in urging the Department of Education to acknowledge these challenges and immediately grant any state requests for a one-year waiver of high stakes testing for the 2020-2021 school year.”
