Inside Politics: Hillary Clinton set to appear Jan. 23 before House panel
Question of the Day
That’s the word from Rep. Ed Royce, chairman of the panel. He said in a statement late Monday that Mrs. Clinton will answer questions about the raid that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
Mrs. Clinton had been scheduled to testify last month, but she suffered a concussion when she fell during an illness. She was later hospitalized with a blood clot in her head.
She plans to step down, and President Obama has nominated Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, to replace her.
The official disclosed the decision Monday on the condition of anonymity because a public announcement had not been made.
During his first term, Mr. Duncan put into place the Race to the Top program that encouraged schools to compete for education dollars. Mr. Duncan’s department also gave most states exemptions to the No Child Left Behind federal education law when it became clear that they would not be able to meet the requirement that all students be proficient at grade level in math and reading by 2014.
