Maybe the week won’t be so slow after all, I’m told, if Hill staff finally release the bill language that they’ve been working on feverishly with hopes of -- could this really happen? -- marking up a bill before August recess? It doesn’t seem possible, but who knows. Congress Now says “As for No Child Left Behind, a bipartisan group of House lawmakers is making a push to mark up its reauthorization before the August recess, with the hope of reauthorizing President Bush’s landmark education reforms before they expire at the end of September. Staff from both parties are negotiating the final details of the bill’s legislative language, which will likely be released within the week as a precursor to a markup.” Yikes. I’m excited. I’m scared. I’m skeptical.
