Five months late and requiring four Continuing Resolutions (CR) FY 18 SCSEP funding = $400 million (level funded) and kept at DOL FY 18 FUNDING HOW DID WE GET HERE? ADMINISTRATIONS FY18 BUDGET REQUEST ELIMINATES SCSEP

$54 billion in total cuts to domestic programs 21% cut to DOL 40% cut to WIOA Elimination of SCSEP CONGRESS IN CHARGE OF BUDGET Good news - both the House and Senate rejected this budget proposal. FY 18 HOUSE FUNDING

$5 billion below FY 17 (3% cut) However, disproportionate cut to Employment and Training Administration (ETA) (18%) SCSEP receives $300 million and transferred to ACL FY 18 SENATE FUNDING - BETTER NEWS $8 billion (5%) above House levels Restores House cuts to most programs: WIOA formula funding level restored SCSEP - $400 million and kept at DOL FY 18 FUNDING AGREEMENT

Six months wait until agreement on topline funding for defense and domestic programs FY 18 FUNDING AGREEMENT Agreement Provides 13% Funding Increase Republicans key priority increased defense funding: $80 billion more in FY 18 $85 billion more in FY19 Democrats key priority increased funding for domestic programs: $63 billion more in FY 18 $68 billion more in FY 19

FY 18 FUNDING Administrations submits amended FY 18 budget request After Congress agrees to increase FY 18 domestic funding, the Administration revised its budget request. Revised request maintained current funding levels for:

WIOA formulas Wagner-Peyser Doubles Apprenticeship request to $200 million Continues to seek elimination of SCSEP FY 18 FUNDING Lesson learned for SCSEP - the Administration will propose elimination of SCSEP in its future budgets regardless of available funding FY 19 FUNDING

FY 19 BUDGET PROPOSAL Administrations initial FY 19 budget request includes same funding cuts for ETA programs as in FY 18 Includes elimination of SCSEP FY 19 BUDGET PROPOSAL After topline budget agreement in Congress --Administration submitted revised FY 19 budget proposal Restores level funding for most ETA programs Maintains elimination of SCSEP Key takeaways on SCSEP funding

Congress in charge of budget and appropriations process FY 18 Administrations budget cuts ignored in FY 18 Unprecedented domestic funding increase approved by Congress Administration continues to support elimination of SCSEP even when more domestic funding is made available Congress chose to maintain support for SCSEP Key takeaways on SCSEP funding Congress in charge of budget and appropriations

process FY 19 Top line funding for FY 19 already in place Slightly more domestic funding available for SCSEP More stability expected in FY 19 for domestic programs Administration unyielding in its desire to eliminate SCSEP What to expect this year? FY 19 appropriations process Hurry up and wait House hopes to complete its appropriations bills before August recess

House Labor-HHS Appropriations hearing held on DOL budget last month SCSEP not on the agenda No expectation that FY 19 appropriations process concludes before November midterm elections What to expect this year? FY 19 appropriations process If Republicans maintain control of House and Senate post midterm elections, no time pressure to complete appropriations bills

If Democrats win control of either House or Senate in midterms, Congress likely to complete FY 19 appropriations process before new Congress begins in January SCSEP funding will be a constant battle throughout the tenure of this Administration support in Congress will determine its fate What to expect this year? Rescission?

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Administration discussing rescission of the funding in FY 18 Omnibus. Effort unlikely to be successful requires a majority of both House of Congress Democrats will oppose Many Republican appropriators likely to oppose Political strategy playing to base angered by FY 18 spending OTHER WORKFORCE ISSUES TO WATCH IN 2018

Administrations FY 19 budget proposal Workforce funding consolidation proposal Secretaries of Labor and Education, who administer most of the programs, are working on a comprehensive plan to consolidate and reorganize Federal workforce development programs Expected to be released later this year Will require authorizing legislation Major policy reforms difficult in budget proposals, particularly in election years ISSUES TO WATCH: WORKFORCE (APPRENTICESHIPS)

Potential to be bipartisan issue A number of apprenticeship bills introduced House HEA bill includes new apprenticeship program CRYSTAL BALL WORKFORCE (APPRENTICESHIPS) Key Issues Role of Registered Apprenticeships Presidents Executive Order and Task Force creating new pathway for apprenticeships Funding Outlook potential area of consensus but likely next Congress

ISSUES TO WATCH: WORKFORCE (INFRASTRUCTURE) Key issue how to pay for it? Administration - $1.5 trillion federal share $200 billion over ten years; additional funding through state and locals, along with public-private partnerships Democrats want $1 trillion in new federal spending CRYSTAL BALL WORKFORCE (INFRASTRUCTURE)

Parties far apart on how to enact an infrastructure bill. ISSUES TO WATCH: SAFETY-NET (ENTITLEMENT REFORM) Overall focus of House leadership Goal reform programming causing bulk of budget deficit Reduce rate of growth Key components -TANF, SNAP, Medicare, and Medicaid Emphasis on work - able bodied beneficiaries should work in exchange for benefits

CRYSTAL BALL SAFETY-NET Challenge Senate not interested Administration likely to follow Senates lead Difficult to complete major reforms in an election year

Likely to be framed as workforce legislation provide states more flexibility across programmatic lines ISSUES TO WATCH: WORK REQUIREMENTS (MEDICAID WAIVERS) CMS approving state waiver requests requiring work requirements for able bodied recipients. Kentucky, Indiana, and Arkansas waivers approved lawsuit filed

To date, several other state requests pending - each state has different parameters for eligibility ISSUES TO WATCH: WORK REQUIREMENTS (MEDICAID WAIVERS) However, Medicaid funds can only be utilized for health related costs How will the state provide work experience, training, supportive services for Medicaid recipients? CRYSTAL BALL - WORK

REQUIREMENTS Work requirement a trend in red states State interagency planning and funding vital State workforce agencies playing a key role 2018 ELECTIONS Midterms are always a referendum on the party in power. Charlie Cook The presidents party has lost Senate seats in 19 of
