Late last week, Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY21) reintroduced an ABMA priority bill: the Employer Directed Skills Act. This bill empowers employers to decide what skills and training their workforce needs and receive partial reimbursement for the cost of that training.
Rita Ferris, ABMA President, had this to say about the bill in Rep. Stefanik’s press release.
“We are pleased to see the introduction of the Employer-Directed Skills Act, which will empower employers to invest in the skills and training of their workers. This legislation, which has been requested by building material suppliers and other industries, will help close the skills gap, boost productivity, and create more opportunities for American workers. We thank Representative Stefanik for introducing this practical initiative.”
