National Skills Coalition audio update

Register for NSC’s Audio Update on FY 2011, 2012 Budget and Appropriations for Workforce Programs 

Dear Rebecca,

Join National Skills Coalition on Monday, February 28 at 1:00 pm ET for an overview and analysis of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 appropriations process— including the nearly $3.8 billion in workforce development and job training cuts proposed under the House-passed Continuing Resolution (CR)—and President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2012 budget proposal for workforce programs. Numerous workforce programs face unprecedented cuts—including the complete elimination of WIA funding in Program Year 2011—and the debate in Washington is moving very quickly. The budget and appropriations process is quite complicated and can be confusing even for experienced policymakers. Make sure you understand how, exactly, Congress and the Administration are proposing to cut funding for job training programs in FY 2011 and 2012. Register today.

National Skills Coalition is keenly aware of the deep constraints and difficult choices facing Congress and the Administration in today’s fiscal climate, but reducing our nation’s investments in workforce development, basic skills and postsecondary education will have an immediate impact on business’ ability to find qualified workers, and will do lasting damage to our nation’s position as a global leader in the 21st-century economy. Learn what you can do to weigh in with lawmakers during this exceptionally challenging time to ensure we’re investing in workforce education and training that will have an immediate impact on both workers and businesses.
