Key Vote Alert – Student Success Act (HR 5)



Student Success Act (HR 5)

 The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote YES on the following amendments that will be considered during the debate on the Student Success Act (HR 5).  These votes will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2015 Congressional Scorecard.

  • Walker-DeSantis Amdt #36: Allows states to opt-out of the federal programs authorized in the bill, and instead receive a block grant.
  • Salmon Amdt #129: Allows parents to opt their students out from federal testing requirements.
  • Rokita-Grothman Amdt #134: Reduces the length of reauthorization to four years, from six years.

If the Walker-DeSantis amendment passes, the Club for Growth will urge House members to support the underlying bill and include that vote in the Club’s scorecard.  On all other possible outcomes, the Club takes no position on the underlying bill. Our Congressional Scorecard for the 114th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
