State spending on job training would triple to $6 million under a bill given preliminary approval by the New Hampshire House.
The bill would add $4 million to an existing fund using money that would otherwise go to the state’s trust fund for unemployment benefits. Supporters argued it will help businesses that are desperate for skilled workers by providing training to people who are unemployed, underemployed and in recovery. It also is aimed at helping people with disabilities, inmates transitioning back to the community, homeless people, seniors and immigrants.
