Reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act
Originally passed in 1998, the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) was set to sunset in 2003. Although never formally reauthorized each time it was revisited by Congress, the Act has been extended several times. With the curret economy bringing more attention to the jobs crisis, both House and Senate authorizers have introduced a WIA reauthorization bill expected to be acted on in 2010.
