  • ACTE Urges Budget Conference Committee to End Sequestration

    Recently, ACTE sent a letter to the chairs of the budget conference committee, Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), urging them to work toward strengthening our nation’s investment in CTE by replacing the harmful sequestration cuts in the FY 2014 budget proposal currently being developed by the committee. As we previously reported, the agreement that ended the protracted government shutdown in October included the creation a conference committee of members of the House and Senate who are tasked with creating a finalized budget plan and setting overall funding levels for FY 2014. The committee will also attempt to tackle long-term budgetary issues like entitlement spending, tax reform and sequestration.
