The Omnibus Jobs bill was amended on the House Floor on Tuesday to include our workforce pipeline ProStart/Hospitality Tourism Management Program (HTMP) grant proposal. Huge thanks to Rep. Dave Baker (Willmar) for working tirelessly to get this in the bill. We also want to thank co-author, Chair Mohamud Noor (Minneapolis), for agreeing to add the provision to his Omnibus Jobs bill and working with Rep. Baker to find the funding for this proposal. In addition, Rep. Baker gave a shout out on the House Floor to our ProStart/HTMP competition winner schools from last week.
