Congress Passes CR

Today the House (260-167) and Senate (81-19) passed H.R. 1473, the long-term continuing resolution that will fund the federal government through the end of FY11 (September 30, 2011). Once signed into law by the President, the bill will cut $39.9 billion from federal programs, including eliminating Tech Prep and cutting the Perkins Basic State Grant by $35 million. The Department of Education has 30 days to release details on the cuts to individual programs, including how the cuts will affect each state.
