For those who do not get  the NASWA alerts or who have not yet read
this one  there is language in the House approp bill regarding
regulations by DOL similar to what the Kennedy/Murray letter requested.
"In addition to establishing funding levels for the remainder of fiscal
year 2007, the appropriations bill includes language (page 56) that
would "restrict any funding under the bill be available to finalize or
implement any proposed regulation under the Workforce Investment Act of
1998, Wagner-Peyser Act of 1933, or the Trade Adjustment Assistance
Reform Act of 2002 until such time as legislation reauthorizing the
Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and the Trade Adjustment Assistance
Reform Act of 2002 is enacted." This language appears to be a direct
rebuke of the effort undertaken by the U.S. Department of Labor to
effect workforce system policy through the regulatory process begun on
December 20, 2006 via the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). Many
Senators have expressed concern with the USDOL effort to alter policy in
advance of the approval of authorizing legislation - Senators Kennedy
(D-MA) and Murray (D-WA) sent a recent letter to Senate Appropriators
requesting language restricting future USDOL regulatory effort in the
spending bill. This letter is available on the Workforce ATM."

A new article titled "House Expected to Approve Fiscal Year 2007

Article summary:
The House yesterday released its fiscal year 2007 spending bill for the
remainder of the fiscal year through September 30, 2007. The bill would
fund most workforce programs at fiscal year 2006 levels but would cut
the one-stop/LMI program by $18 million.
