Harrisburg, PA – A package of workforce development bills is on its way to the state Senate.

The 11-bill package would help match up interested students and individuals with the best training for their career paths.

The bipartisan, career and technical education (CTE) package includes measures to address workforce shortages in business and industry, strengthen educational partnerships with employers, increase access to career oriented technical training and alleviate misconceptions regarding vocational education programs.

House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) joined his fellow Republican members to highlight the legislation and what it means for Pennsylvanians in the job market, and young people making plans for their future.
