ACTION ALERT:


Senator Casey to introduce amendment Wednesday to incorporate SECTORS Act into WIA

SUPPORT LETTERS NEEDED TODAY

This Wednesday, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) will introduce an amendment to incorporate the SECTORS Act into the Senate HELP Committee Workforce Investment Act (WIA) reauthorization bill during the committee’s mark-up.

Letters of support are essential; please consider sending one.

In a recent call with with workforce leaders from across Pennsylvania, Senator Casey announced his support for the SECTORS Act. He also agreed to introduce an amendment incorporating it into a bill reauthorizing the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) at the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee mark-up scheduled for this Wednesday, July 31.

Senator Casey said that a strong expression of support for the SECTORS Act is essential to the success of the amendment. Please express your support today by emailing the following staffers on the HELP Committee:
Michael Waske or Larry Smar

NNSP has drafted a template letter to provide a starting point for yours.

Please send a copy of your letter to the Ohio Workforce Coalition and NNSP.

As mentioned in a recent OWC eblasts and NNSP Newswire, the SECTORS Act has bi-partisan sponsors in the Senate, where it was introduced earlier this month by Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Susan Collins (R-ME), whom Senator Casey joins as a co-sponsor. Incorporating the SECTORS Act into the bill to reauthorize WIA would improve on the definition of sector partnerships and provide dedicated funding for sector
initiatives, which have proven highly effective in helping job seekers and workers attain economic security and assisting employers
to improve their competitiveness.

Also: Has Your Sector Initiative Been Counted?

NNSP is documenting the spread of sector initiatives. We estimate, on the basis of past surveys, that there are over 1,000 sector
initiatives nationwide; we’d like to gather basic information about as many as possible, so as to inform policy-makers, researchers,
practitioners and others. If you are involved in a sector initiative, will you complete NNSP’ short survey? Every response is also a raffle
entry for a $100 gift certificate.

You can access the survey here.
