Reps. Thompson, Bonamici, Finstad, Kilmer Introduce Bill to Expand Career Counseling for Adult Learners

July 26, 2023

ACTE Executive Director LeAnn Curry was quoted in this press release for the Creating Opportunities to Thrive and Advance Act.

“We need to ensure that communicating with learners about career opportunities is as seamless as possible. This legislation empowers leaders of adult education programs to connect learners to high-quality career and technical education (CTE) programs that lead to in-demand, high-wage jobs and careers. Raising public awareness of CTE opportunities is critical to maintaining strong communities and meeting local economic demands for a skilled workforce. ACTE is grateful for Congressman ‘GT’ Thompson, Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici, Congressman Derek Kilmer and Congressman Brad Finstad for their leadership in introducing this bill, and we look forward to working in support of its passage.”
