Foxx to Lead Education and Labor Committee Republicans in the 117th Congress

Today, the House Republican Conference selected Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) to continue leading the Committee on Education and Labor Republicans in the 117th Congress. Following the announcement, Republican Leader Foxx released this statement:
"Over the past few years, my Republican colleagues have entrusted me to lead the Committee on Education and Labor—an honor I do not take lightly. In the wake of an unprecedented push by Democrats for radical, one-size-fits-all legislation, I am proud to say Committee Republicans have stood firm in their efforts to oppose Democrats’ socialist policies while offering pro-growth, pro-worker, and pro-student reforms. While the Democrats’ agenda for the future is one that would stifle innovation and impose job-killing mandates, Committee Republicans have remained committed to policies that create opportunity for America’s students, workers, and job creators.
“In the 117th Congress I will continue working for and striving to create a better future for the American people. This includes looking at opportunities to strengthen our workforce development system. For men and women trying to succeed in the workforce, having the right knowledge, skills, and experience has never been more important.”
