States' Education Reclamation Act of 2019
This bill abolishes the Department of Education (ED) and repeals any program for which it has administrative responsibility.
The Department of the Treasury shall provide grants to states, for FY2019-FY2027, for elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education purposes permitted by state law. The level of funding is set at the amount provided to states for federal elementary and secondary education programs and the amount provided for federal postsecondary education programs, respectively, for FY2012, minus the funding provided for education programs that this Act transfers to other federal agencies.
States must contract for an annual audit of their expenditures or transfers of grant funds.
Program administrative responsibility and delegation of authority are transferred as follows:
- ED's job training programs to the Department of Labor,
- each special education grant program under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),
- ED's Indian Education programs to the Department of the Interior,
- each Impact Aid program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to the Department of Defense,
- the Federal Pell Grant program and each federal student loan program to Treasury, and
- programs under the jurisdiction of the Institute of Education Sciences or the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program to HHS.
