The House has begun its August recess with the Senate’s break following possibly now by the end of this week, meaning you have many opportunities to connect with them while they are home. When they return to Washington on September 5th, we expect months-long fights on the upcoming budget plan and on efforts to advance private school vouchers. Given our shared success in beating back multiple efforts to repeal and “replace” the Affordable Care Act (thank you for your amazing work!) let’s keep the fight going on other critical issues.
We hope you will take advantage of this time by meeting with or talking with your Members of Congress during recess. We are asking members to focus on 2 issues during the August break:
Our message is straightforward: Do not cut funding for public education and students most in need. Do not shift tax dollars into private school vouchers, including through tax reform.
