(Gov. Phil Bryant) touted the state’s decreasing unemployment rate Wednesday during his State of the State speech.

Speaking at the state Capitol, Bryant called on legislators to move $50 million into a workforce training fund. He says no new taxes would be required because money would transfer from the state unemployment trust fund, where it is sitting unused.
