Today, the Senate voted to approve the House-passed Fiscal
Year (FY) 2014 continuing resolution (CR) in an effort to avert a government
shutdown on October 1. As we reported
earlier this week, the CR will temporarily fund federal programs, including
Perkins, at the current, FY 2013 level. For Perkins specifically, federal
funding was cut by 5.2 percent in FY 2013 due to sequestration. This resulted in a $58
million reduction in the federal support for CTE in the 2013-14 school year.
