HB 1008 passed Education Committee yesterday with a vote of 12-0. The bill will permit more schools to apply for Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) grants for new or rebuilt Career and Technical Education (CTE) facilities. HB 1008 is intended to provide resources and opportunities for kids who want to go into alternative careers.

Check out the CBS 4 news story that highlighted the importance of shop classes in schools and my work on the bill.
