(Washington, DC) — A new round of federal funding is set to boost workforce development in southern Minnesota. Senators Amy Klobuchar [[KLO-buh-shar]] and Tina Smith announced yesterday that they had secured nearly two million dollars from the federal budget to support job training programs at Riverland Community College. The Minnesota Democrats say the money will go toward the college’s Learn and Earn scholarship program. The initiative gives students the chance to prepare for high-skilled jobs in the manufacturing and transportation fields.
