NJBIA today joined with Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, and a host of legislators and business groups urging voters to approve the Securing Our Children’s Future Bond Act (Question No. 1) on Nov. 6. The bonds would benefit vocational-technical schools.
Voter approval will provide $350 million for much-needed expansion of career and technical education, labs and classrooms at county vocational-technical schools, as well as enhanced security at New Jersey schools. Another $50 million will go toward career and technical education projects at county colleges.
NJBIA believes vocational-technical schools are a critical tool in filling the pipeline of skilled workers for the future and is urging its members to vote ‘Yes’ on Public Question No. 1.
