H.R. 366, The Vocational and Technical Education for the Future Act
- This item is from the 109th Congress (2005-2006) and is no longer current. Comments, voting, and wiki editing have been disabled, and the cost/savings estimate has been frozen.
H.R. 366 would amend the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998 and reauthorize secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs through fiscal year 2011. Under the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA), these authorizations would automatically be extended for one year, to 2012. H.R. 366 would repeal title II, the Tech-Prep Education Act, of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998 and merge funding for Tech-Prep programs with the vocational education state grant program. A ¿hold-harmless¿ provision would ensure that states receive the same amount of funding for Tech-Prep programs in fiscal year 2006 as they did in the previous year, and Tech-Prep would be added to the list of local uses for the state grant program reserve fund.
