    set of rules no longer evaluates programs on loan portfolio repayment rates and also drops the 40 percent cohort default rate detailed in our update last month Instead graduates of programs whose loan payments comprise 30 percent or more of discretionary income or 12 percent of total income would fail A program default rate of 30 percent or more for three consecutive years would also fail under these new proposed regulations In addition to these changes programs which fall within ranges close to failure would be required to send students prior to enrollment a written warning informing students that their ability to use federal financial aid at their institution is in jeopardy and that their program may not fully prepare them to pay off the amount of debt they are likely to incur These more stringent regulations would affect 11 735 programs and 13 percent of that figure would fail under these new rules ED has released a summary of how many programs would be impacted under this proposal which can be found here It is important to note that the committee s final guidance is non binding and ED can still move forward on new gainful employment rules with or without consensus from the committee An overview of the rules can be found here and the draft can be found here Please check our blog for more updates as this process continues Budget Deal Update Yesterday the House passed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 BBA the details of which we shared on Wednesday The bill sets total discretionary spending levels to 1 012 trillion for FY14 and substitutes 63 billion of sequester cuts over the next two years The House overwhelming supported the two year budget agreement on a 332 94 vote and it has now moved on to the Senate where it is pending consideration The Senate is expected to vote on the bill Tuesday next week and President Obama has indicated that he will sign it into law NASDCTEc applauds this initial first step by Congress to inject much needed certainty into the budget process and to partially reverse a portion of the highly damaging sequester cuts However further Congressional action is still needed to more fully address the federal disinvestment in education programs over the past several years At a time when the American economy is experiencing a shortage of skilled workers restoring funding to Career Technical Education CTE programs is critically important to safeguarding the economic vitality of the United States for years to come JPMorgan Chase Announces New Job Skills Program Yesterday JPMorgan Chase unveiled a five year 250 million initiative that seeks to address the United States skills gap a problem the IMF says accounts for approximately one third of the current unemployment rate The New Skills at Work initiative was announced in D C in conjunction with the Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel and hosted by the Aspen Institute Addressing the skills gap can be one of our most powerful tools
