(1) NOT AGAIN: A New ACA
"Repeal & Replace" Bill - May
Be Just 2 Votes Short in the
U.   S. Senate
Congressional Legislation has
been developed by Senators
Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and
Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to repeal
and replace the Affordable
Care Act, known as
Obamacare. It currently has 48
GOP votes, with 3 undecided
Republican Senators. This
means, the GOP-controlled
Senate only needs 2 of the 3
undecided votes to reach 50
for and 50 against - so that the
Republican Vice President
can cast his tie-breaking vote,
making it 51 in favor of "repeal
& replace" of the Affordable
Care Act. A final vote will likely
be taken by the end of
September --

Wisconsin improves participation and performance on AP
Advanced Placement results part of SAT data from the College Board
MADISON — Wisconsin improved both public school student participation and
performance on Advanced Placement (AP) exams administered last May. The
state had a 5.7 percent increase in participation from the prior year with 42,783
public school students taking 72,637 AP exams, an increase of 2,326 student test-
takers. Nationally, nearly 2.4 million students took almost 4.3 million AP exams.
The exams are scored on a scale of one through five, with scores of three or
higher generally receiving college credit, advanced standing, or both at many
colleges and universities. Wisconsin students had 65.9 percent of their exams
scored three or higher compared to 65.5 percent in 2016. Nationally, 56.0
percent of 2017 exams were scored three or above. Disparities in achievement
among student groups by race and ethnicity are apparent both in Wisconsin and
nationally.
