The Middle-Skills Solutions Act (SB921/HB2713) was reported out favorably by the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development earlier today.
This good news caps months of hard work and advocacy by many partners in the Skills2Compete MA coalition and leadership by our bill’s sponsors and co-sponsors.
In particular, we wish to thank Sen. Ken Donnelly and Rep. Cheryl Coakley-Rivera for leading the charge in their respective legislative bodies.
The bill was reported out largely as written, though there were some technical edits made. Read the bill as reported out.
If passed, the bill will create middle-skill training opportunities for hundreds of Massachusetts residents in the short-term and will make getting middle-skill credentials that employers are looking for more efficient in the long-run.
Now we need everyone’s help to pass the Middle-Skills Solutions Act! Subscribe to our blog or follow us on twitter to keep up with the latest news. And if you’re able, join us at the Crittenton Women’s Union on Monday, March 26 for a coalition meeting to strategize on next steps. RSVP by Friday, March 23.
