Education & Labor Committee Releases 2021 Year in Review

WASHINGTON – Today, the House Committee on Education and Labor released a Year in Review report highlighting the Committee’s accomplishments in 2021.

“This report illustrates the Committee’s tireless work to confront the challenges facing students, workers, families, and the economy,” said Chairman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott. “Over the past year, we have advanced vital legislation – including the historic American Rescue Plan – and conducted rigorous oversight to meet the needs of our constituents. I am grateful to my colleagues on the Committee for their commitment to this important work and I look forward to another productive year ahead.” 

Throughout the first session of the 117th Congress, the Committee took key steps to improve the lives of students, families, and workers. The Committee secured urgent COVID-19 relief through the American Rescue Plan and led House passage of 13 key legislative priorities, including a historic investment in the future of our communities through the Build Back Better Act. This year, the Committee also exercised its oversight authority to protect workers from COVID-19, strengthen American’s civil rights, and protect students and taxpayers from predatory colleges.
