Read first time 02/11/92.Providing for aircraft maintenance vocational training.

     AN ACT Relating to aircraft maintenance vocational training; creating new sections; 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.      From biennial appropriations to the work force training and education coordinating board for the job skills training program, the board shall allocate the sum of five hundred thousand dollars for the 1991-93 biennium and the sum of one million dollars for the 1993-95 biennium to a state technical or community college for the purpose of a vocational training program for the maintenance of commercial aircraft.  The board shall allocate the moneys under this section only after the governor determines that a commercial airline will establish a new facility in this state for the maintenance of commercial aircraft.  If no determination is made by January 1, 1993, or if the governor determines prior to January 1, 1993, that no facility will be established, this section shall have no effect and the board may allocate these moneys for other purposes of the job skills training program.


     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.
