Thank you for contacting me about H.R. 899, a bill to terminate the U.S. Department of Education. I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me.

This legislation was introduced by Representative Thomas Massie on February 7, 2017 and was referred to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. I am not a member of this committee, but I would oppose this bill if it were taken under consideration by the full House of Representatives.

Thank you again for contacting me. It is a privilege to serve you in the Tenth District. I may also be contacted at my Sterling office at 703-404-6903, or my Washington, D.C. office at 202-225-5136.
