Relating to the establishment of the industry-based certification
advisory council and the transfer of certain duties to that
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 3938 would create an industry-based certification advisory council to help align public high school career and technology education programs with workforce needs in the state.
Texas Action is opposed to HB 3938 because it unnecessarily grows government and violates the free market. A new advisory board is not necessary to align career and technology education programs with workforce needs as it is not a proper function of the government to ensure a "workforce ready" outcome for education.
