CONCORD—Today, the New Hampshire Senate passed SB 2-FN, relative to funding for job training programs in the department of business and economic affairs, 14-10.
Prime sponsor Senator Kevin Cavanaugh, D-Manchester, released the following statement after the vote:
“We can’t afford for anyone to get left behind in New Hampshire’s evolving job market. Every week there are thousands of job openings in our state due to a gap in training opportunities. This public-private partnership triples the state’s funding for job training programs – without raising taxes – and will help attract, train, retain, and retrain employees, expanding opportunities for the people of New Hampshire and giving businesses what they are desperately seeking—qualified workers.”
