FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for August 2020 is the Support Children Having Open Opportunities for Learning (SCHOOL) Act, S. 4432, introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The SCHOOL Act would grant American families more choice in how their children are educated both during the COVID-19 pandemic and long after schools return to normal. School choice can and should be the norm, not the exception.
Everything is happening all at once these days, and the news cycles seem to get shorter and shorter each and every week. Regardless, Congress is still voting, the administration continues its work, and the courts are still handing down decisions.
Today, FreedomWorks was joined by 9 organizations in sending a letter to President Trump and House and Senate Republican leadership asking that any existing or future money appropriated to state and local governments by Congress in response to the COVID-19 pandemic be (a) made for use only in matters directly related to COVID-19 and (b) contingent on state and local reopening plans for the economy. The text of the letter is below and a PDF is attached.
