In the accomplished two years, with Secretary of Apprenticeship Betsy DeVos’ leadership, the administering has taken a cardinal of accomplish to cycle aback federal regulations, in lockstep with the Trump administration’s broader playbook. As a result, during the midterm elections, Ms. DeVos was an accessible and often-invoked ambition for Democrats. Although Democrats took ascendancy of the House, with the Senate and White House still beneath Republican control, it seems absurd that there will be abundant in the way of legislation that undermines or changes behavior implemented by DeVos.
Nonetheless, with ascendancy of board chairs in the House, Democrats could accomplish activity difficult for DeVos starting in 2019. Indeed, several admission chairs accept signaled affairs to use their blank ascendancy to appraise DeVos’ policies. What ability we see in the way of aldermanic blank of apprenticeship during the 116th Congress?
To begin, it’s important to accentuate what blank ascendancy entails. Board chairs in the House, in general, accept the ascendancy to assemble accessible blank hearings, ask associates of the accepted administering (among others) to accommodate accessible testimony, and amendment accompanying documents. Awful publicized hearings could body burden on DeVos to change advance or to abstinent awful advancing proposals. One archetype of a activity beneath application that Democrats may ambition is the department’s proposed Title IX rule, which would actualize academic requirements for how colleges and universities handle animal aggravation and advance claims. Admission armchair of the House Apprenticeship and Workforce Committee, Rep. Bobby Scott (Va.), referred to the proposed aphorism as a “damaging setback.”
In accession to hearings, committees can accelerate belletrist to associates of the administering advising a advance of activity or requesting information. In the 116th Congress, with Democrats demography on the administrator roles in House committees and subcommittees, board belletrist may be added acceptable to accommodate critiques, requests for information, and/or recommendations for a change in administering than during the antecedent Congress. For example, a abatement 2018 letter from then-chairwoman of the House Apprenticeship and Workforce Committee, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), and then-chairman of the Subcommittee on Higher Apprenticeship and Workforce Development, Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.), accepted the Administering of Education’s proposed aphorism to alter the action for repaying defrauded borrowers as “a amenable footfall forward.” In contrast, Rep. Scott issued a account in summer 2018 anecdotic the DeVos authoritative agenda, including affairs to carbon the borrower aegis rule, as “ominous.” Democrats may additionally use these belletrist to set the calendar in a address constant with their party’s activity goals.
It’s additionally important to calendar limitations to blank authority. Board chairs, via hearings or added means, cannot formally bulldoze Secretary DeVos (or added associates of the administration) to apparatus activity changes. Of course, Congress can actualize or alter behavior through legislation or abuse to abstain or agitate funding, but with Republicans in ascendancy of the Senate and Admiral Trump in the White House, these are not reliable avenues for House Democrats to analysis Secretary DeVos’ authority.
Nonetheless, we should apprehend House Democrats to exercise their blank ascendancy in the hopes of pressuring DeVos to change course. At the actual least, with House members’ re-election never far on the horizon, Democrats may see amount in activity on the almanac to argue DeVos via hearings, letters, or added means, a action the political scientist David Mayhew refers to as “position taking.”

Oversight hearings can additionally be a admired agenda-setting apparatus whereby associates of Congress accompany issues to the foreground. Publicizing activity decisions and accompanying debates may be decidedly accessible in the ambience of apprenticeship policy, because that apprenticeship does not about rank aerial amid the issues Americans are best anxious about (in a November 2018 Gallup survey, alone 3 percent of respondents adumbrated that “education” is the best important botheration the country faces). Accessible absorption to an affair may be added amplified if the focus of a audition converges with awful arresting apropos or movements. For example, a audition on the proposed Title IX aphorism may draw a abundant accord of absorption in the ambience of the #metoo movement. Hearings accompanying to blank of the for-profit area may accord with beyond apropos about the amount of academy and crushing apprentice debt, with broader implications for the bloom of the abridgement and backbone of the workforce.
At the aforementioned time, advancing blank may draw critiques from Republicans of block political foes rather than legislating. In their access to oversight, Democrats with an eye on 2020 may attack a aerial acclimation act that allows them to set the agenda, body burden on DeVos, and account political credibility after arena into this narrative.
Already, admission chairs of several committees accept adumbrated an absorption in blank of DeVos’ policies. Rep. Scott has adumbrated his absorbed to appraise whether the Administering of Apprenticeship is accomplishing its obligations to assure students’ civilian rights. Beneath his leadership, the House Apprenticeship and the Workforce board may appraise whether accompaniment affairs to apparatus the Every Apprentice Succeeds Act, No Child Left Behind’s successor, accede with the law; civilian rights groups accept argued that some of the affairs do not alive up to “core disinterestedness accoutrement of the law.” Scott may additionally attending into the contempo acknowledgment of the Obama administration’s advice apropos academy conduct behavior that disproportionally affect acceptance of color.

In addition, DeVos’ acknowledgment of regulations accompanying to the for-profit academy industry are of affair to a cardinal of admission Democratic board and subcommittee chairs, including Scott, Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif. [Veterans’ Affairs Committee]), Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn. [Labor, Bloom and Human Services, and Apprenticeship Subcommittee on Appropriations]), and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif. [Financial Services Committee]). In this context, it seems acceptable that DeVos and/or associates of her administering will be asked to affirm about the angle to abolish Obama-era advantageous application regulations as able-bodied as added behavior accompanying to apprentice debt and the for-profit industry.
Significant burden via blank does not necessarily beggarly that DeVos will change advance on any of these items. The Secretary has marched advanced with implementing her and Admiral Trump’s deregulatory calendar admitting cogent pushback appropriately far. Whether an access in academic blank pressures her to change administering charcoal to be seen, abnormally if the admiral continues to abutment her efforts publicly—praise that will close up her abutment in the Senate. Nonetheless, with new ascendancy in the House, Democrats will about absolutely try.
