This legislation would require all high school students, attending public school, or a charter school, or a cyber/charter school, or a private school or a student seeking a general educational development (GED) equivalency, to take and receive a passing grade on the United States Citizenship Test on Civics, produced by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. The test would consist of 100 questions used by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, all high school students would be tested on 100 questions and would be required to obtain a minimum score of 60%. High school students may take the test as many times as necessary for passage, but must pass the test prior to receiving a certificate of High School graduation or a GED equivalency.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin admits he’s a proud father seeing his daughter run a drug company, but he says he didn’t know much about the business decisions Mylan NV made as it raised prices more than 400 percent on the EpiPen -- and kept it that way on purpose. Heather Bresch, Manchin’s daughter and Mylan’s chief executive officer, has come under fire from lawmakers, including many of his fellow Democrats, for her pricing decisions on the life-saving anti-allergy drug. "We make a point ever since I’ve been in this position, and when I was governor, we made a point, we just didn’t get involved. It’s so convoluted. I don’t understand," he said. "To get into something you don’t understand and your daughter being in this type of industry it was best I stayed away." Bresch, 47, is facing demands from Manchin’s colleagues to appear before Congress and explain the price increases, which came as her pay rose substantially.
