ACTE Commends Senators' Efforts on Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act


July 2, 2014

ACTE Executive Director LeAnn Wilson today expressed her support for the goals of the Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act, which was introduced by Senators Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Rob Portman (R-OH).

"These senators have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to the career and technical education (CTE) community, and we are fortunate to have them as partners on Capitol Hill," Wilson said. "I would like to express my gratitude to this bipartisan coalition of senators for their dedication to fostering a brighter future for America's workforce, and I encourage them and their colleagues to bear the goals of this legislation in mind as they turn toward a full reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act."

Senators Portman and Kaine have worked continuously to serve as a voice for ACTE and its members in the Senate, both through their own legislative initiatives and their co-chairmanship of the Senate CTE Caucus.
