Pennsylvania's governor is taking steps to implement a $30 million workforce development initiative to expand high-demand computer and industrial skills training, an effort funded under the recently passed state budget.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf on July 11 signed an order to have the Workforce Development Board coordinate among agencies involved in the new program, known as PAsmart.

Wolf says the goal is to connect people with science and technology education, apprentice programs and other training.

The program will devote $20 million to help teach science, math and technology, along with computer science.

There's another $10 million for apprenticeships and job training.

The money will be distributed through competitive grants.
