Courtney To Serve on House Committee on Education and Labor

About a week ago, our own Joe Courtney was appointed to the House Committee on Education and Labor. The New London Day quotes Courtney's interest as having...
"requested the assignment so that he may begin to address education funding shortfall in eastern Connecticut's schools, to help lower the cost of a college education, protect individuals' retirement and pension plans, and bring tax fairness to middle-class families.

The committee assignment is an important one as Congress will consider the reauthorization of No Child Left Behind, the Higher Education Act, and the Head Start early education law".

As an avid backer of Joe during his campaign I want to congratulate him on his appointment and advise America that Joe is one of the finest political talents this country has and this assignment is a blessing for voters of both parties. I truly believe Joe will make a positive difference - something American education so desperately needs.
