Policy and Advocacy
On Feb. 13, 2012, the Administration released its budget proposal to kick off appropriations activity for Fiscal Year 2013. In this proposal, President Obama suggests level-funding Perkins and investing additional funding in several new education and workforce development programs that could increase student access to high-quality CTE. However, the Administration's proposal is just the first step in the year-long funding process, and statutory budget caps approved last summer, combined with the overall fiscal climate, will make maintaining or increasing Perkins funding, or funding any new programs, particularly difficult. In order to restore previous cuts to Perkins and increase the overall investment in CTE, we must speak out. We must show Congress that investments in CTE will work to get Americans back to work and the economy back on track, and to lay a strong foundation for the workforce of the future!
House/Senate CTE Caucus
In 2007, former Reps. Brian Baird (D-WA) and Phil English (R-PA) launched the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives. Today, the House caucus is chaired by Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI), and serves as a promotion vehicle for legislation, ideas and information related to CTE.
Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Rob Portman (R-OH), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA) serve as co-chairs of the Senate Career and Technical Education Caucus to bring attention in the U.S. Senate to improving and strengthening access to CTE.
