House Education and Workforce Committee News

on .

Chairman John Kline (R-MN) of the House Education and Workforce Committee spoke last week about the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). Chairman Kline helped usher a Republican-backed bill through committee last year that would have consolidated 27 of the job training programs contained in WIA into a block grant. The proposal was never taken up by the full House, but it will likely be reintroduced as is and move through the committee swiftly despite Democratic opposition.
