Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement after the Iowa House and Senate voted unanimously to pass H.F. 2629: 

“Iowa’s greatest opportunity for economic growth is to build a workforce that’s nimble and highly skilled,” said Gov. Reynolds. “Future Ready Iowa helps Iowans looking for a way up by connecting them to the skills and education needed for a life-long career. I appreciate the Iowa Legislature working with me to continue this program that has already changed the lives of so many Iowans.” 

In 2018, Governor Reynolds signed the Future Ready Iowa Act, launching an aggressive workforce policy initiative to ensure that 70 percent of Iowans in the workforce achieve training or education beyond high school by the year 2025. Since then, Future Ready Iowa has made a positive impact on the lives of thousands of Iowans seeking new opportunities.
