TAWB works with other state and national partners to ensure that legislation and policy that comes from Washington, D.C. has the effect of building up the workforce system, ensuring that local and state flexibility are maintained in the operation of the program, and that good outcomes are developed for the businesses and communities that local workforce boards serve. TAWB also provides resources for members and our workforce partners to increase their knowledge of critical workforce development issues and support their efforts in communicating to public officials on these issues.
