The following information is provided as a courtesy to those interested in the CTE Revitalization Grant. ODE takes a neutral position on most bills. If you do not wish to be included on this list, please notify me and I will remove your name.
Wednesday has been CTE Day at the Capitol. There were committee hearings on several CTE-related bills. Senate Bill 112 (SB 112) establishes a CTE Investment Council. One purpose of the Council is to make recommendations regarding the administration of the CTE Revitalization Grant program. You can follow information on this bill at https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/SB112 . All public hearings are streamed live and archived after the hearing.
Senate Bill 674 (SB 674) provides additional funding for the CTE Revitalization Grant. The actual amount being requested is currently left blank. This is similar to the bill passed in the previous biennium that increased the funds available for the CTE Revitalization Grant. You can follow this bill at https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/SB674 . A similar bill (HB 3010) was introduced in the House of Representatives. It can be followed at https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/HB3010 .
Currently the proposed ODE budget includes $11.5 million for the CTE Revitalization Grant. The budget still has to be approved by the Legislature. House Bill 5016 (HB 5016) is the bill associated with that budget. Because the bill covers the entire agency budget, CTE Revitalization is not specifically identified but is included in one of the more general categories listed in the bill. You can follow that bill at https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/HB5016 .
