“We must also remain fervently committed to STEM science, technology, engineering and math education. As we discuss the future of STEM, the watchword is alignmentworkforce alignment. Nothing matters more than preparing our children to face the new, interdependent global economy. So this year I propose we invest $20 million for STEM education. Eight state institutions of higher learning are reprioritizing their budgets to match that funding dollar for dollar. Thats a full $40 million for STEM programs to make Utahs future workforce the smartest, most skilled, and most innovative workforce this nation has ever seen.”Governor Herbert
