If it is, my apologies. For the WIA State Plan it requires that the Plan be submitted by the Governor of each state. I am wondering if state Governors are actually signing these plans or if it is being designated to the Secretary or Director of the Workforce agency. Thanks for any input.

Even if it is only over a beer. WIA reauthorization bill approved by House last week allows religious organizations that receive federal funds for the administration of WIA programs to hire individuals on the basis of religion. Topic for discussion: Would your agency dispensing money under these conditions conflict with your state's antidiscrimination laws and/or your Constitution? JP Jane C.
