|Subject:||Strengthens the Workforce Development Act by adding additional business and industry representatives.|
|In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation amending the Workforce Development Act (Act 114 of 2001) to better reflect emerging businesses and industries in Pennsylvania.
The proposed legislation strengthens representation on the PA Workforce Investment Board by adding representatives from the following industries: manufacturing, technology, energy production and infrastructure development. Additionally, it requires that the annual report already prescribed in statute be posed to the websites of those state agencies which administer the act.
I encourage your co-sponsorship of this legislation. Thank you.
Introduced as HB1245
