House Democrats Block Ashley Hinson Bill to Reopen Schools with In-Person Learning


House Democrats on Tuesday blocked consideration of Rep. Ashley Hinson’s (R-IA) bill that would ensure that federal funds are used to reopen the nation’s schools with access to in-person learning.

Republicans offered a motion to block the previous question, meaning if that the House did not advance the previous question on a bill, they would consider Hinson’s Reopen Schools Act (H.R. 682).

Hinson’s Reopen Schools Act would ensure that federal funds are prioritized to open classrooms and ensure that American children have access to in-person learning.

Democrats blocked the motion 219-203. This is the fifth time that Democrats have blocked consideration of this legislation.
