On Thursday, the House Ways and Means Committee released their draft budget for fiscal year 2021, delayed since the spring due to the pandemic. MCAE is thrilled to see the Committee has proposed funding line item 7035-0002 Adult Basic Education at $46,045,000 – a $5 million increase from FY2020.

Your voices matter! Thanks to our collective advocacy, House members recognize that your work is more important than ever. Contact your state representative and ask them to support funding the ABE line item #7035-0002 at the House Ways and Means proposed level of $46.05 million.
