Workforce Development Bill to be Signed
The Workforce Development Bill (WIOA) passed by overwhelming majority in the House of Representatives on July 9, 2014. It will now go President Obama for his signature. This is a true reflection on how individuals can make a difference in government: 1250 SHRM members alone, along with many other individuals contacted their Senators and Representatives to urge support for this bill.
Here is a short description of the Workforce Development Bill: This Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act will reauthorize the Workforce Investment Act and simplify training services to meet the needs of local employers, streamline a complicated system through smaller workforce boards, and improve employment services for youth, people with disabilities and veterans. In addition, the legislation will strengthen the workforce and training services available to local employers and ensure that workforce boards remain engaged with the local business community.
