H.R. 4297, Workforce Investment Improvement Act of 2012

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Education and the Workforce on June 7, 2012

H.R. 4297 would consolidate job training programs under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) into a single funding stream. It also would amend the Wagner-Peyser Act, reauthorize adult-education programs, and reauthorize programs under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (RA). Those programs, which received discretionary funding of $7 billion and mandatory funding of $3 billion in 2012, provide a framework of job training, adult education, and employment service assistance.
