(MISSOURINET) –  The last bill passed during the Missouri Legislature’s session this year would expand the state’s Fast Track Workforce Incentive Grant Program to include apprenticeships and certain training programs.

Fast Track covers college tuition for eligible Missourians 25 years or older seeking a certificate, degree or industry-recognized credential in a high-demand field.

State Representative Travis Fitzwater, of Holts Summit, carried the Senate bill.

Now it’s up to the governor to take action on the bill.

The Fast Track Workforce grant program was an effort led by Governor Parson.
