An education policy proposal introduced by Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) was included in President Donald Trump’s budget proposal.

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) have introduced the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act. This legislation will give students and parents in Alabama and around the country the freedom they deserve to make educational decisions that are right for them.

President Trump’s budget sets aside $5 billion annually in extra education funding to support the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act.

Congressman Byrne said: “I am proud to work with President Trump to advance our shared goal of expanding freedom and opportunity in education. The inclusion of our Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act in the President’s budget shows the Trump Administration’s commitment to our nation’s students and is yet another positive step moving us closer to improving education opportunities for students across the country.”
