Mackenzie’s CareerBound bill voted out of committee

Pennsylvania could soon have a series of workforce development programs in place to better educate students about opportunities in trade and technical careers. In the same week that a bipartisan workforce development bill package was reported out of committee and scheduled for a vote on the House floor, so too was a bill that would establish school-to-work pilot programs designed to educate students about workforce opportunities.
 
The bill sponsored by Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh) — HB 425 — would establish the CareerBound program, a program which would help workforce development boards, schools and businesses develop school-to-work programs that would expose students to career and technical opportunities in high-priority occupations. The bill was successfully reported out of the House Labor and Industry Committee Wednesday, and will now await a potential House floor vote.
