  • The House on Friday passed the Parents Bill of Rights Act, a key part of the Commitment to America pledge by Republicans who now control the chamber.
  • “Empowering parents and promoting the well-being of children is a top priority of the House Republican majority,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said when the bill was formally introduced earlier this month. “That’s why the Parents Bill of Rights was a critical piece of the House Republican Commitment to America.”
  • The legislation aims to ensure parents have the “right to know what’s being taught in schools and to see reading material” and right to be heard at school board meetings, according the the GOP House.
