Massachusetts Business Coalition on Skills - Budget Letter

On behalf of the Massachusetts Business Coalition on Skills (MBCS), we are writing in support of H.666 / S.348 and H.652 / S.357 because they increase access to career/vocational technical education (CVTE) in Massachusetts. The MBCS – a coalition of 28 diverse business organizations from across the state that advocates for equitable skills development policies – prioritizes eliminating Chapter 74 waitlists and expanding access to CVTE because CVTE is an effective measure for closing Massachusetts’ skills gaps and provides students with greater economic opportunity.
