From our friends at PA Partners.
Thanks to your calls, letters and e-mails in support of Industry Partnerships, the Pennsylvania House Labor and Industry Committee unanimously approved SB 552, Senator Mike Brubaker's bill to establish the Industry Partnership program by statute! SB 552 must now be considered on three separate days by the full House of Representatives, and then the PA Senate must concur.
Before the bill was voted on, the Committee unanimously adopted one amendment to the proposal. This amendment was sought by the state's Career and Technical Administrators to clarify language regarding high priority occupations.
The PA Partners website will be updated with any additional information as the process unfolds. You may view those updates at www.papartners.org/take-action.
