Prior to January 4, 2007 and the beginning of the 110th Congress, there was only one reason to go to the House Education and Workforce Committee Website - for the schedule of committee hearings. Now, the site has been completely re-vamped. The committee has been renamed the Education and Labor committee (no more “workforce”). The new site has a front-and-center section with the committee’s priorities. No Child Left Behind has it’s own webpage, with additional pages regarding how the Bush administration has “shortchanged” NCLB and the Reading First scandal.
The site also has a comphrensive list of committee staff and their portfolios. Please send tips, gossip, and sightings for Alice Johnson Cain, Amy Elverum, Denise Forte, Ruth Friedman, Lauren Gibbs, Gabriella Gomez, Lloyd Horwich, Lamont Ivey, Ann-Frances Lambert, Ricardo Martinez, Lisette Partelow, Julie Radocchia, and Theda Zawaiza to email@example.com.
