Skills for Jobs Act passes House

Feb 10th, 2012

House Bill 1061, by Daniel Kagan, Denver, was approved by the full House today. HB 1061,dubbed the Skills for Jobs Act, directs the Department of Higher Education to work with the Department of Labor and Employment to evaluate workforce projections with regard to educational programs offered.

Kagan says he is confident the measure will meet similar success in the Senate, the next stop for the bill.

“I’m confident that the bill will pass the Senate and soon we’ll have an education system more in tune with the marketplace and a workforce better trained for the jobs that are in demand,” said Kagan.
