Hill Update: CLASS Act and Senate Actions

Senators heard your voices. Thursday was national call in day for the CLASS Act. On Friday the first two amendments on this Act hit the Senate floor.  The first was to direct the savings generated by the CLASS Act back into the CLASS Act. This amendment passed.

The second amendment was to strip the CLASS Act from the final bill. The Thune Amendment was withdrawn by Senator Thune (R-SD) when the votes were clearly not there. The Thune Amendment may come back for seconds at some point so we need to keep vigilant.

Here is the update from Pass the CLASS Act.
