Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) for reintroducing the Secure Communities and Safe Schools Act, legislation, H.R. 2383, which would prevent the Trump administration from using anti-terrorism funds to arm educators.
Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) for crossing party lines to oppose the nominations, respectively, of Wendy Vitter to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, and of Michael Truncale to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-IA), of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, for calling out the Federal Communications Commission on its harmful proposal to impose a hard funding cap on the Universal Service Fund and combining the E-rate Program and the Rural Health Care Program under one funding cap, setting schools and rural health centers up to compete against each other.
Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Mike Braun (R-IN) for introducing the Consider Teachers Act, S. 1387, which fixes an issue with TEACH grants that mistakenly converted grants awarded to teachers who serve low-income schools into loans requiring repayments. The bill would revert such loans back to grants and discharge accumulated interest and other fees.
