CONCORD—Today, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted 216-146 in favor of SB 2-FN, relative to funding for job training programs in the department of business and economic affairs.
After the vote, prime sponsor Senator Kevin Cavanaugh (D-Manchester) released the following statement:
“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 and retain employees, expanding opportunities for the people of New Hampshire. Today’s House vote is the next step to give businesses what they are desperately seeking—qualified workers—as well as give workers what they desperately want—a good paying jo to support their families.”
