From our friends at the PA Fund for Workforce Solutions
Pennsylvania's Industry Partnership Program became law yesterday along with 45 other bills recently passed by the General Assembly. Governor Corbett signed the Industry Partnership legislation making it officially state statute and completing what has been two years of legislative activity involving all four caucuses, two Governors, multiple state government agencies, and countless business and individual advocates and supporters.
With passage of SB 552 and the line item funding of Industry Partnerships in the 2011-2012 General Fund Budget, Pennsylvania's nationally recognized workforce development program will continue for another year. For his part in this progress, Governor Corbett deserves congratulations for delivering quickly on his commitment to maintain the Industry Partnership program.
Thank you to all who actively supported Industry Partnerships — this victory belongs to you! It is also a triumph for pragmatic creativity and problem-solving among businesses, workers, and government.
