WASHINGTON, D.C. | June 20, 2017
On Thursday, June 22, at 10:00 a.m.
, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, chaired by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), will hold a hearing
to examine student safety in the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Job Corps program. The hearing will take place in room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
Members will review reports
that reveal ongoing mismanagement
