WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association (RGA) today released the latest installment of its “Simply Stated” digital video series profiling GOP governors’ work to transform their states through pro-growth reforms and innovative policy solutions that improve the lives of working families.

The latest video highlights Missouri Governor Mike Parson’s Fast Track Workforce Incentive program, which is a centerpiece of the governor’s historic efforts to ensure Missouri workers are prepared for 21st century jobs.

Enacted in 2019, the Fast Track program was the Parson administration’s top workforce development priority. This innovative approach allows for adults to apply for tuition assistance to pursue training, certificate accreditation, and educational opportunities in high-demand fields at Missouri’s public colleges and universities.

Already with 400 applicants, this year Governor Parson is proposing an additional $4.4 million to expand the program, allowing more Missourians to pursue a rewarding career path.

“Through innovative programs like Fast Track, Governor Parson has made Missouri a national leader in workforce development and skills training,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “Governor Parson’s workforce initiatives are expanding opportunity for all Missourians, while helping to grow and diversify the state’s economy.”

The previous episode in the Simply Stated series profiled New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu’s pro-family “Infants in the Workplace” initiative. View previous Simply Stated videos, and all RGA videos, here:
