I have a question about this section:

"As the House was busy working on its comprehensive Perkins reauthorization, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee also continues behind-the-scenes negotiations on its bipartisan Perkins reauthorization bill, and still hopes to be able to introduce that bill later this summer"

How will the HELP Committee introduce the bill this summer? Will they release the bill when they are on recess? Are the behind-the-scenes negotiations happening during recess?

Thank you and hope to hear back!

Thanks for your question Jan! Generally, the Senate HELP Committee releases legislation initially in a "discussion draft" format, without formally introducing it, so they could still do that this summer even though Congress is officially on recess. The staff are definitely still working toward that over the recess.
