CONCORD – Today, the Senate Finance Committee passed SB 44, Senator Jay Kahn’s (D-Keene) bill to establish the New Hampshire workforce pathway program and commission, in a vote of 4-3.
After the vote, prime sponsor Senator Jay Kahn (D-Keene) issued the following statement:
“The Workforce Pathway Commission established in SB 44 will identify how to align existing federal and state job training resources and federal student aid grants to offset the costs of education providers preparing unemployed and underemployed adults for the high demand jobs needed by NH employers, building a better credentialed workforce. I thank my colleagues for their continued bipartisan support of creating pathways into short-term workforce training programs for our most in-demand jobs in health care, advanced manufacturing, technology, trades, and automotives.”
