Chairwoman Foxx on GAO Decision to Uphold Congressional Authority

Today, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement on the Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) decision to defend the ability of Congress to conduct oversight on the Biden administration’s costly student loan bailout:
“Once again, the Biden Administration has failed to follow the rule of law. GAO issued a legal decision finding the Administration failed to abide by the Congressional Review Act (CRA), one of the key tools to hold the executive branch accountable for overstepping its authority. The GAO decision found the Biden federal student loan debt transfer scheme should have been submitted to Congress as a ‘rule.’    
“The Government Accountability Office confirmed today what the American people already knew: the President cannot rule by press release. The Congressional Review Act is one of Congress’s key tools to hold the executive branch accountable for not implementing laws with fidelity. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House and the Senate to hold the Biden administration accountable for this illegal, unfair, and costly student loan bailout.”
