Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) led a letter to Department of Education Secretary Miguel Cardona seeking additional information about the Office for Civil Rights’ (OCR) decision to investigate five states that respect parents’ choices on in-school masking.

In the letter, the Members write: “Using threats to infringe on states’ authorities to protect students and ensure access to education is a gross overreach of federal power, so we are writing to gain a better understanding of the Department’s position on this topic.”

The Members continue: “We are concerned about the selective application of your so-called commitment to science and the well-being of students, as well as your commitment to administering the laws faithfully under your jurisdiction.
