Congress May Be Putting an End to “Collegegate”
Posted by Print

Finally, some good news to report on the Collegegate front.

A bipartisan group of Congressional Republicans and Democrats is preparing to take action that would interrupt the Obama Department of Education’s plans to unfairly cripple career colleges.  Chairman John Kline (R-MN) of the House Education and Workforce Committee, Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) of the Subcommittee on Higher Education, and Representatives Alcee Hastings (D-FL) and Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) are expected to offer an amendment later this week blocking Education Department funding for implementation of the abusive so-called “Gainful Employment Rule.”  In order to put an end to this overly burdensome regulation, we must show our support for providing education opportunities for students who attend career colleges, and urge Congress to support defunding the Gainful Employment Rule.  Please use CFIF’s directory to call your Member of Congress now, and tell them to support the Kline/Foxx/Hastings/McCarthy Amendment to the Fiscal Year 2011 Continuing Resolution on Gainful Employment.
