Community College and Career-Training Grant Program


On December 2, 2010, the Senate passed a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government until December 18.  The House is expected to pass a long-term continuing resolution that will fund the government until the end of the current fiscal year on September 30, 2011.  Senate Appropriations Chairman Daniel Inouye (D-HI) has been coordinating Senate leadership to create an Omnibus Appropriations bill, and he will attempt to present the Omnibus bill as a substitute to the House bill.  If the Senate gets the 60 votes necessary for cloture and substitutes the Omnibus bill, the bill will be sent back for the House’s consideration.  The Omnibus bill is preferable to a long-term continuing resolution because it would include higher funding levels (and earmarks).  ACCT is also hopeful that the program changes to the Community College and Career-Training Grant Program would occur in the Omnibus bill.  These changes will not occur in a continuing resolution.
