S. 3217 would amend the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 and reauthorize secondary and postsecondary career and technical education (CTE) programs through fiscal year 2024. The bill would authorize the appropriation of $6.4 billion over the 2019-2023 period, and an additional $1.3 billion in 2024. Under the General Education Provisions Act, those authorizations would be extended automatically for an additional year through 2025.
CBO estimates that implementing S. 3217 would cost $4.7 billion over the 2019-2023 period, and $4.3 billion after 2023, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 3217 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
S. 3217 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
