Iowa Workforce Development bill signed into law
June 2, 2016
Senate File 2313 was signed into law on Friday. ABI spent many hours working with Iowa Workforce Development and legislators in both parties and chambers ironing out differences in the legislation. The final version of the bill conforms with the policy provisions of the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), makes available federal funding for upgrades to Workforce Development’s unemployment insurance system infrastructure technology and makes the unemployment trust fund whole by replacing with federal dollars more than $500,000 that was inadvertently paid out from the fund in 2014.
