  • Senate Passes Funding Bill, but Shutdown Still Looms

    Today, the Senate voted to approve the House-passed Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 continuing resolution (CR) in an effort to avert a government shutdown on October 1. As we reported earlier this week, the CR will temporarily fund federal programs, including Perkins, at the current, FY 2013 level. For Perkins specifically, 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.
