(This amendment provides $5.3 million of general fund support each year for the workforce services program administered by the Department of Business Assistance. These funds will be used to assist in retraining the workforce of businesses that: (1) produce exportable (beyond local markets) goods or services; and (2) employ at least five employees who are likely to be displaced due to obsolete or inadequate job skills or knowledge. Further, the position must be restructured through the incorporation of new or existing technology, product diversification, or new production activities. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Technology and Science.)
