Madison…State Representative Todd Novak (Dodgeville) issued the following statement regarding his support for protecting Wisconsin’s Skills Enhancement Program:

“Recently, I authored a letter to the Secretary of the Department of Children and Families, Eloise Anderson. The letter conveyed my support of the program. It expressed how beneficial the program is to low income people from around the state, and without funding, many individuals that utilize the program would not have the opportunity to gain skills necessary to become independent and contributing members of society.”

“I had been contacted by constituents who were concerned about the program. The Skills Enhancement Program helps struggling low income students throughout the state remain in higher education, overcome obstacles that occur in their paths, and increase their earned income. The proposed changes brought caution to those that take advantage of the program and were apprehensive about.”

“After expressing these concerns to DCF, I’m pleased to report that they have decided against the changes at this time. This program helps those that are struggling financially to gain the skills necessary to find and maintain employment. I’m proud to see that people throughout the state will continue to have access to such a critical program.”
