Reauthorize WIA to Expand Employment Opportunities for People w/ Significant Disabilities

It has been 16 years since the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) was enacted. Congress should make WIA reauthorization a high priority and ensure that the workforce development system continues to deliver quality services. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) would modernize and improve the workforce development system and vocational rehabilitation services for people with significant disabilities. WIOA would enhance the Rehabilitation Act by prioritizing competitive integrated employment for individuals with disabilities, particularly youth with disabilities transitioning from schools to employment yet maintain the full spectrum of employment options currently available.

The Senate passed WIOA by a 95-3 vote on June 25. The bill now will go to the House of Representatives for vote. More help is needed to get the bill passed in the House.
