House Republicans Seek to “Permanently Block” 2 ESSA Regulations, According to The 74

February 2, 2017

As reported by The 74, House Republicans have begun to “permanently block” two ESSA regulations. Under the use of the Congressional Review Act, a resolution introduced by Rep. Rokita (R-IN) would undo “accountability regulations finalized last fall governing how school performance is judged” and another, introduced by Rep. Guthrie (R-KY) would stop a rule governing “how teacher training programs are rated for their effectiveness.” The proposed rules have already been “put on hold” by President Trump.
