Congress Moves Job Training Reform and Higher Education Bills

Congress Sends Job Training Reform Bill to President's Desk
Legislation to update the Workforce Investment Act, overdue for reauthorization for more than a decade, is headed to the president’s desk following overwhelming bipartisan support from both houses of Congress. The Senate and House authors of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) applauded the passage of the bill, which seeks to update and improve the nation’s workforce development system. The legislation was approved this week by a vote of 415 to 6 by the House of Representatives; it was approved by the Senate last month by a vote of 95 to 3 and will be signed into law by President Obama. 

"There is longstanding, bipartisan agreement that the current workforce development system is broken, and this bill turns that consensus into action,” said Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC). “The bipartisan, bicameral process through which the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act was developed serves as an example of what we can accomplish when we work together. This legislation is important for the millions of Americans who are looking for work and for the employers who have 4.6 million job opportunities that remain unfilled due to the skills gap." 

On Friday, bipartisan leaders gathered together as Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) signed the ​Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act​. To view photos of this important event, click here
Committee Advances Bipartisan Bills to Strengthen Higher Education System
The House Education and the Workforce Committee advanced three bipartisan bills to reform the nation’s higher education system. As part of an effort to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, the legislative proposals will support innovation, strengthen transparency, and enhance financial counseling.

“We made important progress in our effort to strengthen the nation’s higher education system,” said Chairman John Kline (R-MN). “These bipartisan proposals will make a difference in the lives of students and families. My colleagues are to be commended for their hard work in making this a strong bipartisan endeavor. I look forward to House consideration of these proposals and the work that lies ahead.”  Read More.

Supreme Court strikes down NLRB appointments

National Labor Relations Board

The Supreme Court handed the Obama administration a major defeat on Thursday, striking down three of the president's recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. 

In a unanimous 9-0 ruling, the Supreme Court justices found the president had overstepped his powers by making recess appointments while the Senate was not in recess, rather than waiting until they adjourned to a true congressional recess.

This is a huge win for all those that understood that the Presidents action were a clear Executive over reach and worked diligently to bring this issue to the Supreme Court. We especially want to thank our member Association The Independent Electrical Contractors Association (IEC) for their diligent work on this very important case Read More Here
