Senate Perkins Funding Letter Sent to OMB

By: Jamie

In preparation for the release of the president’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 budget, Senator Blumenthal (D-CT) along with numerous other Senators sent a letter to the Office of Management and Budget requesting funds for Perkins. A similar letter was sent requesting funds for the Workforce Investment Act, Pell Grants and other key workforce development programs.

ACTE worked with the Sen. Blumenthal’s office on crafting the letter regarding Perkins funding. This will be the first step in influencing the budget and appropriations process for FY 2013. The next step will be to circulate a “Dear Colleague” letter in the House and Senate regarding Perkins funding. ACTE will keep you up-to-date on this process and alert you when action is needed.
