On July 9th, the House passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which had already been passed by the Senate last month. The President is expected to sign this legislation into law, and for the first time in over 10 years the workforce system will have an updated piece of legislation for workforce programs.
In the coming months, the Department of Labor will be issuing regulations that govern how we operate. Workforce Partnership will stay on top of these coming changes so we can inform board members and stakeholders.
