Congresswoman Susan Davis Statement on Education Department’s Title IX Rule
Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53), Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development, issued the following statement on the finalized rule by the Department of Education addressing campus sexual assault and harassment.
“The Department’s current focus should be on helping our struggling schools, students, and teachers during this pandemic, not making it more difficult for survivors to seek justice. It had an opportunity to align its ruling with where the majority of schools believe their actions reflect robust accountability. They missed by a mile. The Department can expect a speedy backlash.”
