As prepared for delivery during today's hearing:
Our hearing today covers three items from the Education and Labor Committee. If there is a common theme today, it is that each sounds reasonable on its face, but a deeper dive reveals troubling issues. I wish my friends in the majority had rethought each of these items, and I am disappointed that so many Republican amendments proposed to fix these issues were reflexively rejected without even considering their merits. However, I remain hopeful the entire House can do better.
