If passed, HB 405 Would Appropriate Money for Incentive Grants

Krautter who is from Sidney is sponsoring HB 405 which would appropriate about $1 Million from a Special State Fund every year in grants up to $15,000 as an incentive to bring skilled workers into rural areas. It would depend on the needs of the county and whether or not they have a job offer of work in a specific field. Krautter says he wants people to stay in these communities so those receiving funding would be forced into a 5-year commitment. Hear More from Representative Joel Krautter
