mitch mcConnell 300WASHINGTON (7/10/14) — U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell applauded passage of a bipartisan bill, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which improves job training and workforce development programs.

The legislation, which Senator McConnell supported, reauthorizes the Workforce Investment Act and eliminates and streamlines several ineffective and duplicative programs in an effort to make job training and workforce development systems more efficient and produce better outcomes.

“I appreciate the House of Representatives joining the Senate in approving this bipartisan legislation which will help strengthen job training programs in the Commonwealth and will help Kentuckians get the training they need to get back to work in good paying jobs,” Senator McConnell said.

The House of Representatives approved the legislation last night; the Senate passed it in June.

The legislation now goes to the President for his signature.
