The Michigan House of Representatives has approved a plan to add $40 million to Michigan’s worker retraining program, known as “No Worker Left Behind.”

Gov. Jennifer Granholm pushed for the funding, which now heads to the state Senate.

Michigan has the nation’s highest unemployment rate, most recently 7.2%.

The bill’s fate in the Republican-controlled Michigan Senate is uncertain, as some Republicans have questioned the program’s cost. They recommend waiting to see how the program works before doubling its budget.
