This reflects the program funding level provided under P.L. 111-117. P.L. 111-226 rescinded $50 million from this program. b. No funds would be provided for the Education for Native Hawaiians or Alaska Native Education Equity program for FY2011 under H.R. 1. An accepted amendment to H.R. 1 (H.Amdt. 60) would allow ED to provide funds to these programs (that would otherwise be considered earmarks under House Rules). It is unclear whether or how ED would use this flexibility. c. The Academies for American History and Civics Program is authorized under the American History and Civics Education Act (P.L. 108-474), but funding for the program is provided based on authority available under Title V-D-1 of the ESEA. The specific provision of funds for this purpose is detailed in the Conference Report accompanying P.L. 111-117 (H.Rept. 111-366). d. Per H.J.Res. 44, no program authorized under ESEA Title II-A-5 would receive FY2011 funding. This would affect both the Advanced Credentialing program (ESEA Section 2151(c)) and the School Leadership program (ESEA Section 2151(b)). The elimination of the School Leadership program, which is not considered an earmark under House Rules, would result in a lower level of funding than the level specified in H.J.Res. 44 as being needed for programs in the Innovation and Improvement account. Based on a conversation with House Committee on Appropriations staff, it does not appear that it was intended for the School Leadership program to be eliminated. However, it is unclear when, or if, a technical correction would be made with respect to this program. e. Under P.L. 111-117, the Secretary was permitted to use up to $23.082 million from the Charter Schools Program for Credit Enhancement for Charter School Facilities and Charter School Per-Pupil Facilities Aid Programs (ESEA, Section 5205(b)). H.R. 1 would also permit the Secretary to use up to $23.082 million from the Charter Schools Program for these purposes. f. This reflects the program funding level provided under P.L. 111-117. P.L. 111-226 rescinded $10.7 million from this program. g. Continuing grants for Character Education were supported through Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities National Programs. A total of $8.2 million was provided for this purpose. h. Per H.J.Res. 44, $2.578 million was to remain available for continuation grants under the Cooperative Education Exchange program. If this level of funding is retained, it would result in a lower level of funding than the level specified in H.J.Res. 44 as being needed for programs in the Safe Schools and Citizenship account. Based on a conversation with House Committee on Appropriations staff, it appears that it was intended that $3.345 million was to be retained for the aforementioned purpose. However, it is unclear when, or if, a technical correction would be made with respect to this program. i. H.R. 1 includes a discretionary rescission of $986.434 million of mandatory funding from Academic Competitiveness and SMART Grants. Based on conversations with House Committee on Appropriations, this rescission may be dropped and therefore has not been included in the table. j. While the level of appropriations provided for Pell Grants under H.R. 1 for FY2011 would be identical to those provided for FY2010, H.R. 1 would make other changes to the Pell Grant award amount that affect the interplay between discretionary Pell Grant awards and the mandatory add-on Pell Grant awards. These changes would have a substantial negative effect on future increases to Pell Grant awards funded with Congressional Research Service 12 . Proposed FY2011 Appropriations for the Departments of Education and Labor mandatory appropriations. For more information, see CRS Report R41437, Federal Pell Grant Program of the Higher Education Act: Background, Recent Changes, and Current Legislative Issues, by Shannon M. Mahan. k. This reflects the program funding level provided under P.L. 111-117. P.L. 111-226 rescinded $82 million from this program. l. P.L. 111-322 altered the definition of a highly qualified teacher. These funds would be used by ED to implement the new definition. Table 2.

Proposed FY2011 Appropriations for the Departments of Education and Labor Source: Table prepared by CRS, February 25, 2011, based on CRS analysis of H.R. 1 and the House Committee on Appropriations table showing FY2011 Continuing Resolution Reductions (available online at http://republicans.appropriations.house.gov/_files/ProgramCutsFY2011ContinuingResolution.pdf). H.J.Res. 44 analysis prepared by CRS, March 2, 2011, based on CRS analysis of H.J.Res. 44. Note: Bold type in the table generally denotes an account rather than a program. In some instances, an account only has one program. Details may not add to totals due to rounding. a. The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (P.L. 105-220). b. H.R. 1 specifies that $65 million is to be rescinded from amounts available for the Dislocated Workers Employment and Training Activities. c. H.R. 1 specifies that $100 million is to be rescinded from unobligated balances available for the Dislocated Workers National Reserve. d. Language in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (P.L. 111-117) indicates that of the $93,450,000 appropriated for Pilots, Demonstrations, and Research, an amount of $48,889,000 is to be used “for the projects, and in the amounts, specified under the heading ‘Training and Employment Services’ in the statement of the managers on the conference report accompanying this Act.” The referenced section in H.Rept. 111-366 contains a list of specific projects to be funded at a total level of $48,889,000. H.R. 1 changes the $48,889,000 in P.L. 111-117 to $0. Thus, the language in H.R. 1 seems to preclude spending the remaining funds for Pilots, Demonstrations, and Research ($44,561,000) on projects identified in Conference Report 111-366. e. H.R. 1 specifies that $10 million is to be rescinded from unobligated balances available for Evaluations. f. H.R. 1 specifies that $300 million is to be rescinded from unobligated balances available for Job Corps. g. Language in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (P.L. 111-117) indicates that of the $825.4 million appropriated for FY 2010, $225 million was to be allotted within 45 days of the enactment of P.L. 111-117. H.R. 1 strikes this provision. h. There are numerous additional statutes affecting the PBGC.

There are numerous additional statutes affecting the Wage and Hour Division.

There are numerous additional statutes affecting the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs. For a complete list, see U.S. Department of Labor, Budget Justification of Appropriation Estimates for Committee on Appropriations, FY 2012, Volume II, pp. OWCP - 11. l. The language in H.R. 1 does not specify the specific reductions within OSHA required to achieve the $99 million in funding reductions. m. The difference of $1,450,000 between P.L. 111-117 and H.R. 1 is specified in Section 1806 of H.R. 1, which removes that amount of funding for the continuation of mine rescue and recovery activities with the United Mine Workers of America. n. There are numerous additional statutes affecting BLS. For a complete list, see U.S. Department of Labor, Budget Justification of Appropriation Estimates for Committee on Appropriations, FY 2012, Volume III, pp. BLS 10. o. There are numerous additional statutes affecting Departmental Management. For a complete list, see U.S. Department of Labor, Budget Justification of Appropriation Estimates for Committee on Appropriations, FY 2012, Volume III, pp. DM - 13. p. H.R. 1 specifies that the proviso in P.L. 111-117 requiring a $40 million contribution to the International Labour Organization’s International Program on the Elimination of Child Labor is not applicable. Congressional Research Service 17 . Proposed FY2011 Appropriations for the Departments of Education and Labor q. There are numerous additional statutes affecting the Veterans Employment and Training Service. For a complete list, see U.S. Department of Labor, Budget Justification of Appropriation Estimates for Committee on Appropriations, FY 2012, Volume III, pp. VETS - 12. r. Language in H.R. 1 provides for a permanent rescission of $3.9 million of the unobligated balances available in the Working Capital Fund. Further, H.R. 1 stipulates that the $3.9 million must be rescinded solely from the available amounts in the Investment in Reinvention Fund, one of several funds that comprise the Working Capital Fund.
