Read first time 01/28/92.  Referred to Committee on Trade & Economic Development/Appropriations.Providing for aircraft maintenance vocational training.

     AN ACT Relating to aircraft maintenance vocational training; creating a new section; making an appropriation; and declaring an emergency.




     NEW SECTION.  Sec. 1.      The legislature finds that the creation of new jobs is crucial to the economic well-being of the state and its residents.  As several commercial airlines are considering establishing major aircraft maintenance facilities in the state, it is important for the state to demonstrate the ability to provide a skilled work force with the technical skills essential for such a facility.  Providing additional state assistance to vocational training programs on aircraft maintenance will ease job displacement in the state and offer an incentive for economic development.


     NEW SECTION.  Sec. 2.      (1) The sum of five hundred thousand dollars for the biennium ending June 30, 1993, or so much thereof as may be necessary, is appropriated from the general fund to the department of trade and economic development for allocation to a state technical or community college for a vocational training program on the maintenance of commercial aircraft.  Moneys allocated under this section shall not be used to replace or supplant existing funding.

     (2) The department of trade and economic development shall not expend any portion of the appropriation in this section for administrative expenses or overhead.

     (3) The appropriation in this section is contingent on the establishment by a commercial airline of a new facility in this state for the maintenance of commercial aircraft.  If such a facility is not established, the appropriation in this section shall lapse.


     NEW SECTION.  Sec. 3.      This act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety, or support of the state government and its existing public institutions, and shall take effect immediately.
