ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- The Maryland House of Delegates has passed Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposal to create a grant process to help get people the skills for jobs that are in high demand.

The House passed the bill 115 to 23 on Tuesday. The Senate already has approved the measure.

It makes $2.5 million available for the Employment Advancement Now Initiative. The program will encourage regional training collaborations among businesses, nonprofits, colleges and local governments.

It also will focus on industries such as traditional and advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity and health care.
