NAWB, USCM and NLC Voice Opposition to Local Area Designation Proposal

The National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB), U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) and National League of Cities (NLC) recently sent a letter to Congress objecting to language related to local area designation under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) in President Trump’s FY 2019 budget proposal. The language would take away local workforce boards’ abilities to respond to labor market changes and give Governors control of WIOA funds in the state. We believe that local boards must be allowed to continue working with local employers to develop and implement regional strategies to meet the workforce needs of their communities.
