For Texas to remain the most competitive economic engine in the nation, we need an edge to reskill and upskill our workforce. The TRUE initiative creates an immediate pipeline from community college training directly to the workforce. As Chairman of Higher Education, this initiative will take our workforce to the next level, create opportunities for the unemployed, and open doors for Texans seeking in-demand careers.
Today, I held a press conference with Representative Tan Parker, the Texas Association of Community Colleges, and Woody Hunt on our legislation making the TRUE initiative a reality. Thanks to the many stakeholders making this happen. #txlege
