NEWS YOU CAN USE
Sen. Tina Smith's New Bill Expands Workforce Training Partnerships




U.S. Senator Tina Smith continues her push to help Minnesotans secure careers in high-demand fields with new legislation to fuel workforce training partnerships between schools and local businesses.
Often, good-paying jobs in areas like advanced manufacturing, construction, IT, and health care don't require an expensive four-year degree. But students either aren't aware of or don't have access to local programs that provide the training for those jobs. 

The 21st Century Workforce Partnerships Act gets at the heart of that issue.
Sen. Smith's bill addresses a major need in our modern eco omy: education and hands-on training for the high-skill jobs of today and the future. Her proposal would expand and strengthen workforce partnerships between secondary schools, two-year colleges, and local businesses.
