Now another Democrat from the Sunshine State is being mentioned as Biden’s possible understudy: U.S. Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla.
While she took aim at the Trump administration on the matter, Shalala also called out some of her fellow Democrats.
Last week, U.S. Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla., and U.S. Rep. Ross Spano, R-Fla., teamed up on the “Congressional Advisory Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics (CACIA) Act" which would create a “Blue-ribbon Congressional Commission to identify and examine issues of national concern related to the conduct of intercollegiate athletics and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).”
Shalala's bill would ensure accreditors “respond to complaints, monitor and assess an institution’s records of student complaints, and submit such complaints to the Secretary and state agency as appropriate” and makes them “review teach-out plans and agreements when they see signs of a potential school closure.”
A proposal to help Americans behind on their student loan payments championed by members of the Florida delegation on Capitol Hill is coming to Tallahassee.
Despite engaging in a heated war of words with President Donald Trump in recent days, U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Mary., is also working with a Republican congressman from Florida in offering a bill to help veterans attending colleges and universities.
Veterans groups and education leaders are going all out to help a South Florida congresswoman’s proposal to close a loophole proprietary colleges use when it comes to federal funds, including GI benefits.
Rubio got some help from the Sunshine State last week as U.S. Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla., teamed up with U.S. Rep. Mark Walker, R-NC, to bring out the House version of the bill.
Last week, Shalala joined more than 180 other House Democrats to back U.S. Rep. John Larson’s ,D-Ct., “America’s Call to Improve Opportunities Now (ACTION) for National Service Act” and President John F. Kennedy’s establishment of the Peace Corps was front and center.
Freshman U.S. Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla., who was president of Hunter College and the University of Miami and the chancellor of the University of Wisconsin, is backing the “Defending All Veterans in Education (DAVIE) Act” which, her office insisted, “closes the GI Bill loophole in federal law that allows for-profit colleges to take advantage of veterans and servicemembers.”
