  • Legislative Update: Update on Sequestration; Republican Flexibility Plan « NASDCTEc Blog
    fiscal year t he sequestration requires a 7 8 percent reduction in non exempt defense discretionary funding and a 5 0 percent reduction in non exempt nondefense discretionary funding The sequestration also requires reductions of 2 0 percent to Medicare 5 1 percent to other non exempt nondefense mandatory programs and 7 9 percent to non exempt defense mandatory programs Education and workforce programs would fall into the non exempt nondefense discretionary category and would be subject to the 5 cut For the U S Department of Education this translates into a cut of 2 278 billion What does this mean for Perkins The entire Perkins allocation would be reduced by 5 then the federal to state formula would be run to determine state allocations Therefore the impact of sequestration on your state Perkins allocation is yet to be determined While a 5 estimate is something you can work with as an estimate the annual formula shifts due to population and poverty as well as the small state minimum will impact the allocations among the states NASDCTEc has been in touch with the Office of Vocational Adult Education OVAE regarding when state estimates will be available As for Friday afternoon they do not have a firm answer The U S Department of Education has not yet determined if the reduction will apply to the July 1 allotment and the October 1 allocation or if the reduction will be taken out of one of the two allotments made to the states NASDCTEc has encouraged OVAE to provide you with the state allocations as soon as possible The White House created fact sheets on the general effects of sequestration http www whitehouse gov blog 2013 02 22 what sequester states While these are useful they do not contain specific information in regard to Perkins funding As soon as more details are available including a conclusive impact on Perkins and each state s allocation we will make it available If you have any questions please feel free to contact David Beckett NASDCTEc s Advocacy Manager at 301 588 9630 or dbeckett careertech org Republican Flexibility Plan In recent weeks many lawmakers especially on the Republican side have touted the idea of allowing the Federal Government flexibility when it comes to reducing the budget as an alternative to sequestration While sequestration sees uniform spending reductions across every non discretionary program flexibility would allow each Federal department the ability to cut some programs more than others The White House has made it clear they are against this proposal because it would still see a vast reduction in spending levels in programs like CTE that invest in the future prosperity of the nation Similarly the Senate Democrats are opposed to the proposal but yesterday saw their move to replace the sequester with an increase in taxes for households earning over 5m a year fail when they couldn t garner enough votes The stalemate means the current Continuing Resolution CR which funds the government until March 27
