Yonts Serving on Jobs Project through National Foundation

yonts d 300MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (1/18/12) - State Rep. Brent Yonts has joined a high powered executive and legislative national jobs partnership project to address the need for job creation and retention in the states.
 
The National Conference of State Legislatures Partnership Project on Jobs and Innovation, spearheaded last year by the NCSL Foundation for State Legislatures, is giving lawmakers like Yonts, D-Greenville, the opportunity to work with top business leaders on job growth, according to a Sept. 2012 project proposal. Yonts was asked to serve on the Project because of his role as Vice Chair of NCSL’s Labor and Economic Development Standing Committee.
 
“Experts have indicated time and again that the best and fastest way to revive our national economy is by creating new jobs,” he said today. “The Project will examine what we, the states, can do to spur job creation and workforce development.”
 
Business partners and prospective partners involved with the Project include Dell, Wells Fargo, Comp TIA, Amgen, Maximus, Wal-Mart, Honeywell, Federal Express, AIA, and Apollo Group. NCSL said last fall that it “will continue to invite private sector partners to participate and provide financial support for the project.”
 
The Project hopes to move America forward with innovative jobs policy in the face of continued “political gridlock” in Congress, said Yonts.
 
Project participants met on Dec. 5 to present research findings on state jobs policy issues, and will meet again on May 1 at the NCSL Spring Forum in Denver, CO to discuss policy, develop case studies and plan for the Project’s Jobs Summit in Austin, TX.

The group will release its final work at NCSL’s Fall Forum in late 2013, according to the Project timeline.
