Industry Partnership Bill Passes Senate Appropriations

Pennsylvania State Capitol Senate ChamberThanks to our friends at the Pennsylvania Fund for Workforce Solutions.

On Monday, May 2, 2011, the Pennsylvania Senate's Appropriations Committee passed SB 552 by a unanimous vote. The bill will be placed back on the (voting) Calendar for consideration by the full Senate. The bill can now be passed by the full Senate if the Majority Leader brings it up for a vote.

The e-mails and letters sent to Senate Appropriations Committee members asking for support were helpful in getting that unanimous vote. Now we need to turn our attention to all Senators. To help get SB 552 approved by the full Senate as quickly as possible, please continue your support efforts.  Visit to learn more about what you can do.
