Day 384

1/ Jill Biden said that two years of tuition-free community college – her signature legislative initiative – is “no longer” part of the Build Back Better agenda, telling a group of educators that she is “disappointed” that the provision was dropped because of necessary “compromises.” In October, Joe Biden told lawmakers that community college would likely not be in the bill.

And free community college is no longer part of that package,” the first lady said during an appearance in Washington before the Community College National Legislative Summit.
