DeVos moves to roll back regulations on federal aid to religious colleges

Another sharp change from the Regulatory State of Obama.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has moved to make it easier for faith-based entities to qualify for government grants and student aid by taking aim at regulations that go too far in restricting religious participation.

Notices posted late Wednesday as part of the federal government’s twice-yearly regulatory agenda said the department would undertake reviews to ensure that rules governing religious organizations comply with current law.

That includes the Supreme Court’s decision last year in the Trinity Lutheran case striking down a Missouri law that had prevented a church from obtaining public funds for resurfacing playgrounds.

Regulators gone wild, reined in.
