The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) will be holding a hearing on on WIA Reauthorization this Thursday, June 20 2013, at 2:30 PM.
It’s been widely reported that Senator Murray (D-WA) and Senator Isakson (R-GA) have been working on a bi-partisan WIA reauthorization bill, and that they are getting close to the finish line on a draft.
Here is the witness list:
- Steve Partridge, President/CEO, Charlotte Works, Charlotte, North Carolina
- Beverly E. Smith, Assistant Commissioner and State Director for Adult Education, Office of Adult Education, Technical College System of Georgia, Atlanta, Georgia
- David Mitchell, Administrator for Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Des Moines, Iowa
Additional Witness, TBDAlan N. Rosenberg , Vice President, Chief of Staff, and Chief Administrative Officer, Temple University Health System, Philadelphia, PA
UPDATE 6/18/13: The final witness was announced late yesterday; I’ve amended the post above accordingly. Also, the WIA bill itself may be released as early as June 25th. The hope is that they might get it passed out of committee shortly after the July 4th recess.
