Ask the Senate to support veto override of Workforce Training Fund

Call for Senate support for the Workforce Training Fund

Advertisements

Last Tuesday, the House restored $12.5 million to the Workforce Training Fund in the FY2011 budget that was vetoed by Gov. Deval Patrick.   Now we need the Senate to do the same.

Full funding for the Workforce Training Fund is one of the Skills2Compete-Massachusetts campaign’s key recommendations.

Contact your state senator TODAY to let them know you support an override.
