On April 6, the House Perkins “Dear Colleague” letter was submitted to the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee with a total of 140 signatures! That total included 26 Republicans and 114 Democrats from 38 different states or territories. The letter, addressed to Subcommittee Chair Tom Cole (R-OK) and Ranking Member Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) urges “strong support for the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act in FY 2018” funding bills.
This record support should help to establish CTE as a priority as Congress moves through the budget and appropriations process. Be sure to reach out to your Members of Congress that have signed on and thank them for their support! We also extend our appreciation to House CTE Caucus Co-chairs Reps. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Jim Langevin (D-RI), who led the effort to collect signatures for the letter. A complete list of Members signing the letter can be found here. If your Representative signed, take a moment to send a message expressing your gratitude using the CTE Action Center.
