I wrote a brief follow-up post on the SSA play-by-play:

    Feels like whack a mole. One down but what is next?
    Easy to fall into a big hole trying to discern what is in these bills. I assume you will move on to another pending legislative agenda.

    I fell into a big hole with NCLB. Put all of into Word so I could find my way through the verbiage and note key passages. Have done that a couple of times since in effort to make the import of the legislation clear to people who will be in line to deal with the consequences.

    • Laura, I do not know what is next. What I do know is that this HR 5 was expected to cruise on through the House, and that isn’t happening.

      I updated the post with Amash’s “maybe not..”

      NCLB reauth reporting is like a play-by-play at a sporting event.
