03/12/19 -- 1201H01.01H (Amendment HA1 to HB 470) -- Requires the apprenticeship to be approved by the Dept of Labor

Amendment Number: 
1201H01.01H (Amendment HA1 to HB 470)
Amendment Purpose: 
Requires the apprenticeship to be approved by the Dept of Labor
Date of Vote: 
03/12/19
My Vote: 
No
Explanation: 

Representative Doug Beck (Democrat - District 92) introduced this amendment that would specify that apprenticeships referenced in HB 470 be approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.  The bill sponsor indicated that all Missouri approved apprenticeships are currently part of the Department of Labor's approved program, and that unless the legislature votes to change that it will continue to be the case.  As such, this amendment was redundant, so I voted "no".
