House Democrats expected to ramp up oversight of DeVos
Politico – November 7, 2018
HOUSE DEMOCRATS EXPECTED TO RAMP UP OVERSIGHT OF DEVOS: Democrats seized control of the House on Tuesday night, likely placing Rep. Bobby Scott in charge of the House education committee. And that means the hot seat is about to get even hotter for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
Democrats on the campaign trail this cycle used DeVos as a symbol of what's wrong with President Donald Trump’s policies, pushing ads that portrayed her as an out-of-touch billionaire and enemy of public education intent on unraveling civil rights and higher education consumer protections. With Democrats’ takeover of the House, they gain new authority to propel DeVos — and her top aides — to testify or turn over documents.
