LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana is using millions of dollars to help fill high-demand jobs.
Governor Eric Holcomb is touring the state, unveiling the jobs program. He was in Madison Tuesday afternoon.
The state will help pay tuition for workers who get trained in high-demand fields. Welders, machinists, medical assistants and IT specialists are needed.
The state will cover around $14 million of tuition costs at Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University. Another $10 million will reimburse companies that train new hires.
It's not clear how many people could be covered by the effort.
