AUSTIN, Texas - Unemployment remains high despite the high demand for skilled workers. 

Community colleges and Texas lawmakers have plans to meet those needs by re-skilling and up-skilling the Texas workforce. 

State Sen. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe) has filed Senate Bill 1102 and state Rep. Tan Parker (R-Flower Mound) has filed its companion bill, House Bill 3003, to introduce a new proposal: Texas Reskilling & Upskilling through Education Initiative (TRUE).

Dr. Brent Wallace, chancellor at North Central Texas College, joins Mike Warren to discuss the TRUE initiative in the Texas Legislature.
