In his annual budget address, Governor Butch Otter outlined his proposals to invest in what's being called "K-through-Career" education and workforce development. One area of focus is proposed funding specifically for community colleges.
Some of the ideas include increased funding to professional technical programs, including for advanced manufacturing and other programs at schools like College of Western Idaho (CWI). Those programs include areas like machining, welding, design and electronics.
