Importance of Local Role Acknowledged in Administration's Training Budget


Larmouth, Mary-Margaret, Nation's Cities Weekly


The President's budget includes a proposal to consolidate 70 job training programs into four general programs: the Adult Workforce System; Adult Education and Literacy; School-to-Work: In School; and School-to-Work Second Chance. Under this new system, states, local governments, and other local entities would be given greater flexibility in tailoring job training programs to meet their specific needs. Overall, the administration's proposal acknowledges that local elected officials should have a significant role in establishing a workforce development system that is responsive to the needs of job-seekers.

As part of the administration's proposed "Lifelong Learning Agenda," the President's FY 1996 budget includes $14.2 billion for the "GI Bill for America's Workers"-an increase of $1.0 billion over comparable programs in 1995.

According to the Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, "Existing programs have conflicting rules and administrative procedures, confuse the people they are intended to help, add bureaucracy at every level, and waste taxpayer money."

The proposal consolidates 70 employment and training proagrams.

However, the President's proposal is only one of many to streamline the myriad existing federal job training programs.

House Republicans included job training consolidation as one o their top legislative priorities in their "Contract With America."
