Governor Seeks To Develop Skilled Workforce
PIERRE, SD - Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he will ask the South Dakota Legislature to approve programs aimed at easing the state's shortage of skilled workers in certain occupations.

The governor says workforce development will be one of his key focuses during the legislative sessions that open Jan. 10.

Daugaard says South Dakota companies are having trouble finding skilled workers in occupations ranging from welders to health care professionals.

The governor says solutions could include recruiting skilled workers from other states and expanding training for certain occupations in South Dakota's universities and technical institutes.

The president of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry, David Owen, says he agrees with the governor's plan to increase the supply of skilled workers.
