Investing in Job Training
Washington has now started implementing its new job-training program, Resources to Initiate Successful Employment (RISE), which will run from Dec. 1, 2015 through Sept. 30, 2018. RISE is expected to provide services to 7,000 participants during those three years.
We need more bipartisan programs like this one to focus on expanding economic opportunities for all Americans, and I look forward to working with all my colleagues on commonsense solutions that help rebuild our middle class.
