DENVER (AP) – Colorado’s colleges would have to work with labor experts to find out where jobs are under a bill that received bipartisan backing in a state House committee Wednesday.
The bill would direct the Department of Labor and Employment to share job projections with the Department of Higher Education. The goal is to craft educational programs better suited to the state job market.
Democratic Rep. Daniel Kagan proposed the bill. It received unanimous approval in the House Education Committee Wednesday and now awaits a vote by the full House.
