U.S. Rep. McSally Statement on Legislation That Will Lower Unemployment Rate and Close Skills Gap
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha McSally today released the following statement after she voted in support of the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act to simplify the requirements states must follow when submitting workforce development plans. These reforms would allow local leaders to submit proposals based on their region’s specific education and economic needs.
“America is a place where anyone can succeed. Today, education is key to achievement, and success in the classroom leads to success in the workforce. Unfortunately, technical education and vocational training are too often unavailable in schools across the nation. I strongly supported the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act to help more Americans enter the workforce with the skills necessary to compete for and succeed in high-skilled, in-demand careers.”
