Take Action: Tell Your Senator to Support CTE
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act today by a voice vote. The bipartisan vote shows the broad support for the bill, which reforms and reinvigorates the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins) to meet the current workforce needs through better program alignment, better reporting, increased work-based learning, promoting industry-recognized credentials and increased federal investment. The bill generally addresses AGC's recommendations and AGC is calling on the U.S. Senate to swiftly consider the bill. Contact your Senators and urge them to support the bill.
