Senator Gudex On Hand For Bill Signing Ceremony
State Senator Rick Gudex was on hand Wednesday during one of Governor Walker’s bill signing ceremonies for the Wisconsin Fast Forward bill. It’s a bill the state lawmaker from Fond du Lac co-authored. Gudex says it’s appropriate that Walker signed the bill at Jay Manufacturing in Oshkosh, a company that’s growing. The other bill signing ceremony was in Janesville. Gudex says the bill accomplishes several things that will help close the labor skills gap. He says it will provide more grant funding for training opportunities and creates a labor management information system. Gudex says the labor management information system will be developed over the summer and will provide faster links for job seekers and employers looking for workers. He says the bill shows Wisconsin is willing to invest in its workforce.
