  • Showdown Over Funding Bill Threatens Government Shutdown

    On Friday, the House of Representatives approved a Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 continuing resolution (CR) that will temporarily fund federal programs, including Perkins, through December 15. The stopgap funding bill, which passed on a mostly party-line vote of 230-189, is necessary to prevent a government-wide shutdown when the current fiscal year ends on September 30. The CR will continue funding the federal government at the current, FY 2013 funding levels. For Perkins, federal funding was cut by 5.2 percent in FY 2013 due to sequestration. This resulted in a $58 million reduction in the federal support for CTE in the 2013-14 school year.
