GOP PULLED ED BILL REAUTHORIZING NCLB
WASHINGTON (AP) -Republican leaders have scrapped a vote on legislation to update the No Child Left Behind education law in the face of conservative opposition.
Senior GOP officials say it's unclear when a vote will happen.
The bill would keep the annual testing requirements on schools but give much more control to states and districts about how to spend federal money and set policy.
Leaders have struggled to round up enough rank-and-file conservatives to support it.
Opponents include conservative groups including Heritage Action for America and Club for Growth.
Democrats also dislike the bill, and the White House has threatened to veto it.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss private negotiations.

We'll keep you posted on the progress of this bill. Thank you for responding to our call to action and contacting your legislators. This bill would have kept the federal government heavily involved in American education as well as the burdensome and ineffective testing requirements. We must do all we can to limit the government's involved in education and bring it back to the states.
