(This amendment provides an additional $1.0 million the first year and $1.0 million the second year from the general fund to increase the payments to the Vocational Education Instruction budget which is distributed to school divisions to purchase equipment and tools for Career and Technical Education classes. The number of students who attained an industry certification has grown from 500 to over 5,000 during the last six years. Career and Technological Education reports have concluded that two out of every three jobs in the future will require technical skills and some post-secondary school education.)
