Chronicle: Minnesota Congressman Will Be Top Republican on House Education Committee


Washington – Rep. John Kline of Minnesota has won a contest to replace Rep. Howard P. (Buck) McKeon of California as the top Republican on the House education committee.

Mr. McKeon, a strong supporter of the guaranteed-student-loan program, stepped down from the committee last week to become the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee. His departure came at a time when the education committee was preparing to take up legislation to overhaul the student-loan programs.
