HB16-1302 - Align With Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Alignment Of The Colorado Statutes With The Federal "Workforce Innovation And Opportunity Act".

The bill changes the title of the "Colorado Work Force Investment Act" to the "Colorado Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act" and aligns the current state statute with the federal "Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act" (federal act).

Passage of the federal act in July 2014, created inconsistencies between Colorado statutes and federal law in regards to workforce development activities. This bill updates the language of the "Colorado Work Force Investment Act" to comport with the federal act. It also clarifies the roles that specific entities within Colorado play in work force development programs. It removes requirements that existed in state law that no longer apply due to the changes in federal law.
