February 2015

Helping to set the stage for the forthcoming reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, the Task Force on Federal Regulation of Higher Education, whose members are Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.), and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), released a report on February 12 calling for streamlined federal regulation of colleges and universities.

The report responds to three key charges for the task force: providing specific recommendations for streamlining reporting requirements; quantifying time and costs associated with compliance; and recommendations for reform. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee held a hearing on February 24 to discuss the findings of the report.

Staff on the House Education and Workforce Committee intend to introduce a draft of the Higher Education Act as soon as the first week of March.
