Governor Signs Michigan New Jobs Training Program Change: On Wednesday, July 22, Governor Snyder signed into law Senate Bill 69 (Booher), thus enacting several changes the MCCA has been seeking for the program. SB 69 grandfathers-in all existing MNJTP contracts, clarifies a technical issue regarding the minimum wage eligibility, and importantly does not include language that would have limited our ability to work with large employers claiming MEGA credits. SB 69 is now Public Act 130 of 2015. Two companion bills, Senate Bills 70 and 71, which would increase the current $50 million cap, are still expected to see action later this year. Many thanks to all of you for your advocacy that made this change possible! 

 

 Transportation Funding Debate Continues: Again the House and Senate technically returned for session last week, but failed to take action on legislation to address Michigan's transportation infrastructure needs. Meanwhile, most other legislation seems to be on hold while transportation talks continue. As a reminder, the Senate Fiscal Agency has compiled an analysis comparing the House and Senate-passed proposals. The Senate will not be back in session until August 11, and the House will not return until August 18.
