Over three days, CVTA members from across the country participated in the 2022 CVTA Hill Day. The CVTA Hill Day team held nearly three dozen meetings with Representatives and Senators from both sides of the aisle.
CVTA members made their voice (albeit virtually) loud and clear to press for common sense solutions to fix the truck driver shortage, address state testing delays and to push back against a proposal that would exclude our training providers from participating in the WIOA program that was in H.R. 7309, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2022.
We were privileged to share our concerns with Rep. Virginia Foxx, the Ranking Member of the House Education and Labor Committee, and her colleagues on the committee along with her counterparts in the Senate that students who attend CVTA schools (and other proprietary vocational programs) have the right to receive tuition assistance under the WIOA program.
Thanks again to our Hill Day team that took the time out of their busy schedules to be our advocacy champions. CVTA will have more member-oriented advocacy programs throughout the year.
