Webinar: Federal workforce policy update.

January 14, 2014

Join the National Skills Coalition Federal Policy Team this Friday, January 17, at 1:00 pm ET for a federal workforce policy webinar update!

A new year brings new challenges and opportunities. While Congress finally reached a bipartisan budget deal that brings more certainty to the budget process and partially rolls back the harmful sequestration cuts set to take effect in fiscal years (FY) 2014 and 2015, they still have other unfinished business to work on in 2014. Friday’s webinar will cover several of these issues, including:

  • Funding for FY 2014,
  • Extension of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program which expired on   December 28, 2013,
  • WIA reauthorization,
  • The Farm Bill, which also authorizes the SNAP Employment & Training program (SNAP E&T),
  • Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), which expired at the end of 2013, and
  • The debt ceiling which will turn back on in early February.

Federal Policy Director Rachel Gragg and Policy Analyst Angela Hanks will provide important updates on these and other legislative items remaining on the agenda.
