Letter to the Senate on the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013

December 18, 2013

ACE and 18 other higher education associations wrote this letter to the Senate December 17 to support passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. This 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 Council on Education
  • American Indian Higher Education Consortium
  • Association of American Universities
  • Association of Community College Trustees
  • Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
  • Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities
  • Association of Public and Land-grant Universities
  • Council for Christian Colleges & Universities
  • Council for Higher Education Accreditation
  • Council for Opportunity in Education
  • Council of Graduate Schools
  • EDUCAUSE
  • Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities
  • National Association of College and University Business Officers
  • National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities
  • National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators
