$24M for the Workforce Training Fund in FY2011

Thanks to everyone who called their Senators asking them to override the Governor’s veto of $12.5 million for the Workforce Training Fund.

Thanks to you, and to the members of the legislature, the override was successful, and there will be a total of $24 million in the Workforce Training Fund in FY2011.  This funding will be available to businesses for grants to support training including skills upgrading, basic skills, and ESOL.
