New law certifies IL skilled workers to teach students
The legislation was sought by a Pekin business and carried by State Representative Mike Unes. This measure has the potential to help businesses like Excel have a specific skill-qualified applicant pool. Governor Quinn says he was pleased to sign the bill that will benefit students, employers and the local economy.
He says providing training for in-demand skills and helping link young people to jobs in their communities is a promising investment.
