INDIANAPOLIS -

Governor Mike Pence is applauding the group of leaders who will spend the coming months investigating how to employ more Hoosiers.

Pence announced Tuesday that the Indiana Career Council would hold its first meeting by the end of the month and have a preliminary report ready for the General Assembly by the end of the year.

The governor appointed former Cummins Inc. president Joe Loughrey, Indiana University Health executive Neil Pickett, Indiana Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 697 official Dan Waldrop and BWI Contractors President Gary Hobbs to the council.

The council was created with bipartisan support by lawmakers earlier this year and tasked with examining how to fill the so-called skills gap between available jobs and unemployed residents.
