The Hill reports: "The Senate is taking a hammer to a pair of Obama-era education rules. Senators voted 50-49 on Thursday to roll back a regulation that placed tougher accountability measures on schools. The rule detailed how public schools must carry out laws meant to ensure they are meeting the needs of all students. Republicans are using the Congressional Review Act to nix the Obama regulations, allowing them to undo the rules without any support from Democrats. Thursday's vote comes after senators voted 59-40 on Wednesday to nix teacher preparation requirements."
