JOBS Act would provide shorter-term assistance

To the editor:

Thank you, Senator Portman, for authoring bipartisan legislation called the JOBS Act. The JOBS Act would allow low-income students to use Pell Grants for shorter-term training programs.

Community colleges around the country have made this legislation their number one priority, because companies like Encino Energy are working with local businesses, putting together training programs that are needed to help fill in-demand jobs, such as natural gas related employment.

Our company alone supports upwards of 4,000 jobs from hundreds of local contractors each year. Most of these careers are directly tied to training programs that would benefit from the JOBS Act. That’s why Encino Energy supports the JOBS Act and urges Congress to move quickly.
