Workforce Investment Legislation

In collaboration with our association partners, NARC worked to advance bipartisan legislation that provides sufficient resources for workforce investment while preserving local and regional authority on Workforce Investment Boards. The Senate passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) on June 25 and the House of Representatives acted on July 9 .  WIOA is the first legislative reform in 15 years of the public workforce system.  President Barack Obama signed WIOA into law on July 22, 2014.   The legislation modernizes and improves existing federal workforce development programs, helps job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and matches employers with the skilled workers they need.
