A Trump administration push to close federal job training centers for disadvantaged youth is getting bipartisan pushback from Congress.

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin has introduced legislation aimed at preventing the closures of Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers. The planned closures are part of sweeping changes to the programs that would privatize most of the nation's more than 120 centers and close nine, including the Blackwell Job Corps Center in the Northwoods town of Laona.
