Luria joins effort to fund special education during COVID-19

Congresswoman Elaine Luria signed a bipartisan letter urging congressional leadership to fully fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act in future COVID-19 relief packages.

“Access to a quality education is an issue that is deeply important to me and to families throughout Hampton Roads. That is why I joined this bipartisan effort to urge Congressional leadership to fully fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in the next relief package,” said Luria, D-Va. “As remote learning becomes our new normal, Congress has a responsibility to ensure students with disabilities have access to a quality education during this public health emergency.”
