February 01, 2017

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement after voting to advance Betsy DeVos’ nomination to serve as Secretary of Education.

“I believe Betsy DeVos understands that decisions about education need to be made much closer to where kids are.  I look forward to working with her to find ways to get those decisions back to local school boards, and moms and dads.  As Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee for the Department of Education, I will be working hard to ensure that public education continues to be appreciated as the cornerstone of opportunity in America.”
