DeVos will testify before House Appropriations Committee next week

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will testify on Capitol Hill next week about Education Department funding, the House Appropriations Committee announced today.

DeVos is scheduled to testify before the committee next Wednesday, March 22 at 10 a.m.

POLITICO reports that DeVos will “likely face questions about school choice legislation and any proposed cuts to education programs in the Trump administration’s budget outline, which is slated to be released on Thursday.”

“It will be DeVos’ first appearance on Capitol Hill since her confirmation hearing in January when Democrats grilled her over her experience and she stumbled on several answers to policy questions.”
