Legislature approves Snyder's workforce plan

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (AP) -

Gov. Rick Snyder's proposal to better prepare Michigan's workforce has passed the state Legislature.

The House on Tuesday voted 105-4 to fund the initiative with $100 million this upcoming fiscal year. The bills now go to Snyder.

Most of the money, earmarked from the state's Higher Education Student Loan Authority fund, would be funneled into scholarships and career-oriented programs within high school. The goal is to maintain a pipeline from high school graduation to a job in professional trades, information technology or another high-demand field.

Snyder, an outgoing governor, is touting talent development as his final mission in office.
