Georgia Chamber applauds Deal, Evans on passage of HOPE Grant bill

GaChamber

The following is a statement from Georgia Chamber President and CEO Chris Clark regarding Governor Deal signing House Bill 372, which expands access to the HOPE Grant for Georgia students who are seeking entry into the state’s technical college system:

“One of the most critical keys to business success – and therefore job creation and investment – is the creation of a 21st century workforce that is prepared for today’s jobs and a sustainable pipeline that can provide companies the human capital they need for decades to come.  HB 372 will help us achieve that goal by broadening the qualifications for the HOPE grant in a way that will allow more Georgians to receive the skills and training they need and employers desire.”

“We applaud HB 372 sponsors State Rep. Christian Coomer and State Rep. Stacey Evans for all their hard work on the measure, the General Assembly for passing this bi-partisan legislation, and commend Governor Deal, Lieutenant Governor Cagle and Speaker Ralston for their strong support.”
