James Lankford

Dear Mr. King,

On January 7, 2016, I wrote to you with concerns about two Dear Colleague letters issued by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR): 2010’s letter on harassment and bullying,1 and 2011’s letter on sexual violence.2 As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management, I oversee agencies’ adherence to procedures governing the federal regulatory process to ensure that the public is heard and the process produces the best possible policy outcomes.
