House Appropriations Committee has announced that they will postpone the markup—the
committee hearing where a bill is debated and amended—of the House Fiscal Year
(FY) 2014 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education appropriations bill,
which includes funding for Perkins. We reported earlier
this week that the committee markup is one step in the long path toward a
final FY 2014 funding amount for Perkins. The committee has not announced
Information on the rescheduling of the markup and has not released the text of
Labor-HHS-Education appropriations bill, which was reportedly almost complete.
