House Will Mark Up Perkins Funding Bill This Week


July 16, 2012

By: Mitch

The House Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee will mark up its Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 funding bill on Wednesday, July 18. The bill will include funding for Perkins along with other federal education and workforce training programs. As we reported, the Senate Appropriations Committee has already approved its appropriations bill, which provided level funding for Perkins. This was great news for CTE, but we need to keep up the pressure on Congress. There is not much time left to act!

  • Call your Representatives one more time (especially those who are members of the Appropriations Subcommittee).
  • Tell them how important Perkins funding is to CTE programs and students in their district.
  • Ask them for their support in maintaining funding for Perkins!
