“It was great to visit NSA Industries today, which is creating good jobs in New Hampshire and driving our innovation economy forward,” Senator Hassan said. “During my time as Governor, I was proud to work with NSA on their expansion in our state, and supporting New Hampshire’s innovative businesses remains one of my top priorities. I repeatedly hear that one of the top issues for our businesses is the need for more highly skilled workers, which is why I’m focused on closing the skills gap and helping more people through career pathways.”
Senator Hassan, as a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, worked to pass bipartisan legislation in Senate – which has now been signed into law – that authorizes funding for states to implement high-quality career and technical education programs to promote a more highly skilled workforce. As a member of the Senate HELP Committee, Senator Hassan fought to include critical priorities for New Hampshire in the bill, including requiring that CTE programs collaborate with local industry and workforce development organizations to better meet the needs of innovative businesses; ensuring that traditionally underserved students, such as students who experience disabilities, have access to career guidance and academic counseling; and giving more CTE students the opportunity to obtain a postsecondary-recognized credential. Additionally, this month Senator Hassan introduced the Invest in America Act, which would create competitive grant programs to expand the workforce, modernize training tools, and promote job creation in New Hampshire and across the country.
