first_imgHouse Supports Sullivan’s Bill To Boost State’s WorkforceOn Wednesday, January 30, 2019, the Indiana House of Representatives voted in favor of State Rep. Holli Sullivan’s legislation to continue strengthening Indiana’s workforce pipeline. Sullivan said House Bill 1002 would reallocate existing state funds to proven workforce programs so Hoosiers can increase their certifications, earn stackable credentials and secure higher-paying jobs in high-demand fields to meet the changing needs of Indiana employers.“By 2020, nearly two-thirds of in-demand jobs will require experience beyond a high school education,” Sullivan said. “Indiana’s private sector continues to grow and we need to attract and retain more skilled workers to fill the jobs becoming available. This legislation would build off our previous workforce efforts and continue strengthening our talent pipelines.” Learn more HERESullivan: Supporting the Ohio River I-69 Crossing Indiana and Kentucky have been working for years to establish a river crossing on I-69 between Evansville and Henderson, Kentucky. After careful evaluation of the funding options, I am in support of Central Corridor Alternative 1B, which would apply tolls only to the new interstate bridge of I-69 and not on the U.S. 41 bridge. This route is the most effective at the lowest total cost and has the least intrusive construction and environmental impact.The interstate bridge will provide a valuable north and south path of travel for our community, and positively affect all industries in our area and beyond. This development could open up numerous economic opportunities, and improve access to our region’s attractions and businesses.
