Defend Public Education H.R. 610- "To distribute Federal funds for elementary and secondary education in the form of vouchers for eligible students and to repeal a certain rule relating to nutrition standards in schools."

This bill would decimate the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the latest reauthorization of President Lyndon Johnson's Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), robbing vital funding earmarked for impoverished schools, struggling learners, school safety, and special education programs to name a few.  It would also allow for the granting of vouchers through the establishment of block grants to states promoting "competition and choice" in our schools.  Finally, it will abolish the No Hungry Kids Bill, which provides nutritional standards and funding for in-school breakfast and lunch programs. It would undermine funding to public schools while demanding that school vouchers be allowed for states to receive funding. It would also reduce the nutritional quality of school lunches.

H.R.785 - National Right-to-Work Act

This bill would first gut collective bargaining and union membership rights for private sector unions and eventually would permeate the public sector as well.  Similar bills never gained any traction in the past but the current iteration stands to make progress in light of the current national political climate and the anti-union sentiment being bandied about the country.
