BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a bill Thursday which creates a new higher education workforce initiative and increases higher education funding.
"Our higher education institutions have already done an incredible job over the past six years instituting a number of reforms to help more of our students graduate," Jindal said in a written release. "These results are a testament to the incredible work of our faculty and students at schools across Louisiana."
It is meant to serve as a collaborative effort involving government, industry and higher education to target job opportunities.
