Amendment to Remove Gainful Employment Rule Spending Limitation Fails in House Approps Committee

The House Committee on Appropriations is currently considering the draft appropriations bill passed by the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies on June 17.  As mentioned previously, Section 309 of this bill contains a limitation on the use of funds to implement and administer the gainful employment rule.  Rep. Rosa Delauro (D-CT) offered an amendment (at 5:24 in the video) to remove this limitation from the  draft.  Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) rose to the defense of the provision.  The amendment failed on a voice vote.
