•On July 22, 2014, with strong bi-partisan support, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WOIA) bill was signed into law by President Obama. WIOA poses to reform and strengthen the workforce investment system in the nation and put Americans to work. This critical piece of legislation focuses on youth with disabilities, competitive integrated employment, and transition from K-12/IDEA to VR.
•We are fortunate to have Jeff Riel, Deputy Director of DOR (and CECY member), to provide us with an  overview of the legislation and some of its key highlights.
