Pro-business Bills Approved

June 5, 2019

It was an honor to help lead debate and passage of the Transfer Act bill (SB 1030) on the House Floor. This is a pro-business and pro-environment bill that will help stimulate economic growth and protect our environment.

I also spoke in favor of An Act Promoting Careers in Manufacturing to Public School Students (SB 854). It has positive impacts on business, manufacturing, and workforce development. It supports the manufacturing workforce pipeline and students interested in careers in manufacturing:

  • Requires State Department of Education (SDE) and local boards to incorporate options in manufacturing careers in Student Success Plans
  • Requires SDE to study the demand for career and technical ed teachers at our tech high schools
  • Allows school counselors to give info on manufacturing careers
