Yarmuth Hopes House Will Take Up Education

by Stephanie CrosbyAfter a break for Easter, Congress is back in session this week. Democrat John Yarmuth of Louisville says he hopes the House will now tackle the issue of education. He says the President has presented a plan that would overhaul the No Child Left Behind Act.Yarmuth says in order to be successful, the House would need to approve the changes by the August recess.“I would think the he wants to try and move on that before we break in August," says Yarmuth, "once we break in August, essentially the year’s going to be over, even though we have some time after August, the election’s going to prevent most everything. So I hope we can do it before August.”Yarmuth says the House is also waiting to see if the Senate will act on immigration legislation and financial regulation.
