ANGIE CRAIG’S POSITION:  Representative Craig cosponsored the bill on 9/11/19.



STATUS: Introduced 6/26/19 by Rep. Richmond, Cedric L. [D-LA-2].


  • “The demand for a skilled workforce far exceeds the supply in today’s economy,” said Rep. Richmond. “This bill will help fill that void by expanding Pell Grant eligibility to provide six million more students access to the training and skills they need in my district and nationwide. In an evolving workforce, we must work to meet the needs of middle-skill jobs. The JOBS Act accomplishes that goal and makes a meaningful investment in the development of America’s talent.” (Source: Rep. Richmond, Press Release, 06/26/19)
