Prepared Remarks to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies

Chairman Blunt, Ranking Member Murray and Members of the Subcommittee:

Thank you for the opportunity to testify on the President’s Fiscal Year 2019 Budget Request for the Department of Education.

This budget sharpens and hones the focus of our mission: serving students by meeting their needs. When the Department was created, it was charged to “prohibit federal control of education.” I take that charge seriously. Accordingly, President Trump is committed to limited government, fiscal discipline and reducing the federal footprint in education.

OPEC, Russia prepared to raise oil output amid U.S. pressure

OPEC, Russia prepared to raise oil output amid U.S. pressure(This story removes reference in paragraphs 1 and 4 to OPEC discussions being triggered by Trump’s tweet) By Katya Golubkova, Dmitry Zhdannikov and Rania El Gamal ST PETERSBURG/DUBAI (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia and Russia are discussing raising OPEC and non-OPEC oil production by some 1 million barrels a day, sources said, weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump complained about artificially high prices.  Riyadh and Moscow are prepared to ease output cuts to calm consumer worries about supply adequacy, their energy ministers said on Friday, with Saudi Arabia’s Khalid al-Falih adding that any such move would be gradual so as not to shock the market. Raising production would ease 17 months of strict supply curbs amid concerns that a price rally has gone too far, with oil having hit its highest since late 2014 at $80.50 a barrel this month.

Prepared Remarks by Secretary DeVos to the Alfred E. Smith Foundation

Thank you, Your Eminence. I’ve long appreciated your moral leadership in the Church, in this city and in our country. Your winsome voice simply cannot be ignored. Thank you for all that you do on behalf of New York’s families.
And sir, it’s always a pleasure to be with you, though, I must admit I was a bit nervous pulling up this morning. After reading the clips on the Met Gala, I was having second thoughts that I might be underdressed and perhaps I should have reached out to you earlier to see if you had something I could borrow.
