This week, the Ohio Senate approved House Bill 2, legislation that would provide funding for the new TechCred program and industry sector partnerships.
However, HB 2 heads to conference committee with members of the House and Senate holding differing opinions on the Individual Micro-Credential Assistance Program, which is designed to reimburse training providers. It’s anticipated the House will reject the Senate amendments to the bill, thereby setting up House-Senate negotiations during the final weeks of the session.
This delay will push back the availability of funds to qualified industry sector partnerships. 11/14/2019
