Statement on Bipartisan Passage of Worker Training Grants
 
MADISON – The following is a statement from Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on the bipartisan passage of worker training grants.
 
“Today, Wisconsin’s working, middle-class families were offered a hand up. After cutting Wisconsin’s technical college aid by $72 million in the last budget, it’s refreshing to see Senate Republicans join us in reversing some of those devastating cuts. While this bill only provides a small Band-Aid to an enormous gash in the budgets of our technical schools, there’s no doubt it’s a step in the right direction.”
