Senate poised to toss regs By KIMBERLY HEFLING 03/08/17 10:00 AM EST With help from Caitlin Emma, Mel Leonor and Benjamin Wermund
BYE BYE REGULATIONS: Two Obama-era education regulations appear to be going the way of eight-track tapes and pay phones. The Senate is expected to pass measures today that would scrap one regulation designed to hold schools accountable under the Every Student Succeeds Act, and another that governs teacher preparation programs. Republicans have long claimed the regulations are examples of federal overreach in education. They are using the Congressional Review Act to get rid of them, and President Donald Trump has indicated he will sign the measures.
