NEPCSA Massachusetts Day on the Hill
June 20, 2018
NEPCSA member schools, employers and graduates attended the Massachusetts Day on the Hill on June 20, 2018. The goal was to educate legislators about the contribution that private career schools make to the Commonwealth’s economy and workforce. The Day on the Hill began at Pearson Learning where attendees received a legislative briefing and enjoyed some lunch. After the briefing and lunch, NEPCSA visited senators and representatives to discuss the opposition to the Student Tuition Recovery Fund.
NEPCSA has been working to defeat the legislation to create a Student Tuition Recovery Fund, and has been successful thus far. With the help of NEPCSA members, the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure gave the legislation an unfavorable report with an "Ought not to pass".
The bill is currently under review with the Senate Ways & Means Committee, and NEPCSA is confident these recent meetings will increase the chances that the bill will not move forward.
Thank you to those all who participated, and continue to support NEPCSA in our efforts to protect New England Private Career Schools!
