JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill into law Monday that allocates more than $35 million for worker training efforts.

The money is for a series of grants to help eliminate technical college waiting lists in high-demand fields, help high school students get job training for high-demand jobs and help people with disabilities find work.

The worker training proposal had bipartisan support in passing through the Wisconsin Legislature.

The signing ceremony was at Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville.
