Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-Glenbeulah) last night voted in favor of  the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (H.R. 5587), which updates a 2006 piece of legislation by better addressing the training and skills needed to take part in today’s workplace.

By increasing focus on work-based learning opportunities and giving states more flexibility in how they use federal resources in career and technical education opportunities, the legislation helps strengthen the skills of America’s workforce.

“This increased focus on career and technical education is especially important for filling high-skill, in-demand jobs in fields like manufacturing,” said Grothman. “By passing this bill, we’re helping to grow the economy in Wisconsin’s Sixth District and across the state.”

Grothman previously voted in favor of the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act when it passed unanimously out of the House Education and Workforce Committee.

The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 405-5.
