Republican Leaders Criticize Democrats’ Partisan Higher Education Bill

Republican Leaders on the Education and Labor Committee, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and Rep. Lloyd Smucker (R-PA), issued the following statement criticizing the Democrats' introduction of partisan higher education legislation that will hurt students and doubles down on failed policies: 
“This bill does not address the underlying issue of exploding college costs. In fact, by increasing burdensome requirements and bureaucratic red tape the Democrats’ bill will contribute to rising college costs. It is past time Congress acknowledges the status quo is failing. Doubling down on failed policies will not help students pursue the American Dream. Instead of promoting unworkable partisan bills, we ought to work together to support students’ access to affordable postsecondary education that will prepare them to enter the workforce with the skills they need for lifelong success.”
