The Senate Education and Career Development Committee unanimously passed a bill Wednesday that would create work councils to develop new vocational curriculums for Hoosier high school students.

Sen. Dennis Kruse, R-Auburn, authored the bill - based on a plan by Gov. Mike Pence - designed to address the skills gap between high school and available jobs in the workforce.

The work councils would evaluate job opportunities in a specific area of the state before recommending a curriculum to fit those needs.
