A job training bill that Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed because of what he said a potential for higher unemployment taxes for employers businesses is now law, thanks to the compromise budget that Sununu signed.
House Bill 4 – the trailer bill to that budget that Sununu signed into law on Sept. 26 – will triple to $6 million the amount of job training funding from the unemployment trust fund. It will expand existing programs with a focus on training those out of the workforce, starting with those on Medicaid expansion and those leaving prison, for employers ready to train and hire in key sectors of the economy.
