WIOA Proposed Rules from U.S. Department of Labor & U.S. Department of Education

The first draft rules, called a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), were released this spring for review. Five separate NPRMs, over 2,600 pages, covered all aspects of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

Staff from the various Washington operating agencies reviewed the NPRMs and provided an initial summary for the Workforce Board's consideration at the Board's May 28 meeting.

Workforce Board provides consolidated state comments
On June 11, the Workforce Board mailed comments to the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education, summarizing key points and concerns from Washington's stakeholders.

The Board also transmitted verbatim comments.

Coordination is key
Developing and issuing all five WIOA NPRMs in a coordinated manner reinforces WIOA's heightened emphasis on collaboration to ensure an integrated and seamless delivery system for jobseekers and employers.

Comments on these documents were accepted by the two federal agencies through June 15.
