U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown has introduced new legislation that would prepare Ohioans for the jobs of the 21st century through investments in work-force development.

Brown last week announced the introduction of The Building Student Success Act, aimed at improving student retention at community colleges. Tuesday, President Obama gave an address concerning the issue, calling for 5 million more community college graduates by 2020.

"It's critical that Ohio's work force is prepared for the jobs of the 21st century," Brown said. "This legislation will ensure Ohio workers have the right resources for a competitive job market. Work-force development and economic growth go hand-in-hand."
