Workforce Investment Act Mark-up Postponed

The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee has postponed its August 3rd mark up of legislation to reauthorize the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The Committee has not yet set a new date. Title IV of WIA provides state formula grants for vocational rehabilitation services for people with disabilities, and prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities by federally-funded programs. The HELP Committee recently circulated a staff discussion draft and solicited feedback from workforce investment stakeholders, including disability groups.
