Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District released the following statement today on the passage of H.R. 5:

“Education is the best investment we can make for the future of our nation. Yet, instead of supporting students and teachers, this bill drastically cuts education funding, reduces protections for disadvantaged students, and eliminates accountability. It undermines our commitment to providing equal access to quality education for all children and is particularly devastating for English language learners and special education students. We should be strengthening, not undermining opportunities for these students' success. This bill not only lets our students down, it weakens our education system and threatens our country’s ability to compete in the global economy.”
