Letter to the House in Support of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013

December 12, 2013

Letter to the House of Representatives expressing support for the bipartisan deal negotiated by the House-Senate budget conference committee. The bill would provide needed stability to federal funding and is a positive step toward reversing some of the detrimental cuts of sequestration in fiscal years 2014 and 2015. It would also reduce the deficit without directly harming the programs that are needed for sustained economic growth.

Along with ACE, associations signing the letter include:

  • American Association of Community Colleges
  • American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers
  • American Association of State Colleges and Universities
  • American Indian Higher Education Consortium
  • Association of American Universities
  • Association of Community College Trustees
