“On behalf of the nearly 900 construction employers that make up Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin, I thank Joint Finance Committee Republicans -- and specifically State Representative Mike Rohrkaste -- for efforts yesterday to approve historic amounts in the Career and Technical Education Incentive Grants and Local Youth Apprenticeship Grants. This significant investment will help address the construction skills gap and go a long way toward getting more Wisconsinites into lifelong, family-supporting careers.”
