BILL NUMBER:S5700

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the New York State urban development
corporation act, in relation to certain grants for assistance to
provide advanced manufacturing employers with a competitive workforce

PURPOSE: To provide state funding through New York State urban
development corporation to educational institutions, not-for-profits,
industry public-private partnerships, and individuals for training and
certification needed to enter the field of advanced manufacturing.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one of this bill would amend section 16m of section 1 of
chapter 174 of the laws of 1968, constituting the New York State urban
development corporation act, by adding a new paragraph, (o).

JUSTIFICATION: The legislation is aimed at filling what many refer to
as a "middle-skills gap," where positions require specific skill set
that you cannot get from a traditional 2 or 4 year degree program.
Unfortunately federal and state funding is not available for noncredit
certificate programs.

Specialty training courses in advanced manufacturing can run upward of
$5,000 each. And many who are looking for a good paying job or to
start a new career are deterred because of the cost, especially those
who are unemployed, under employed or still in high school. Many
businesses say the lack of skilled workers is a growing problem.

The funding for this legislation would come from the Empire State
Fund. The Empire State Development Corporation will determine what
will qualify as an "advanced manufacturing" certificate and award the
funds, with preference being given to programs that foster local and
regional public-private partnerships.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
