House Approves Workforce Reauthorization Legislation

Posted on: July 11th, 2014 by NADO Admin


On July 9, the House of Representatives approved by a vote of 415 to 6 the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), H.R. 803 as amended.  The Senate passed the legislation by a vote of 95 to 3 in June and President Obama is expected to sign the bill into law.

H.R. 803 is the result of a bipartisan, bicameral agreement to reauthorize the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (P.L. 105-220), which expired in 2003.  WIOA reauthorizes federal workforce and training programs and sets recommended appropriations through fiscal year (FY) 2020.
