Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will vote on passage of the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (H.R. 5587), a comprehensive Perkins reauthorization bill. As we reported in July, the House Education and the Workforce Committee voted unanimously to approve the bill. The legislation now moves to the House floor where we hope it will receive the same overwhelming support from lawmakers in order to keep the reauthorization process moving forward. We need the help of CTE advocates nationwide to achieve this goal. Please take a few minutes to contact your Representative and ask him or her to vote YES on H.R. 5587!
