2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill changes the composition of the State Employment and Training Commission (SETC). To comply with the requirements of the recently-enacted federal "Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act" (29 U.S.C. s.3101 et seq.)(WIOA), the bill: 1. Adds the Governor to the membership of the SETC; 2. Has the leader of the Senate and the General Assembly, rather than the Governor, appoint the members of their respective legislative house to serve on the SETC; and 3. Requires that the composition of the SETC be consistent with the composition required for a State job training coordinating council pursuant to WIOA. The bill meets the WIOA requirement that the membership of the SETC include the lead State officials with primary responsibility for core programs by specifying that the SETC membership includes the Commissioners of Community Affairs, Education, Human Services, and Labor and Workforce Development, the Chief Executive Officer of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, and the Secretary of Higher Education. The bill also provides, in a manner consistent with, but not required by, WIOA that, of the public members appointed by the Governor, not less than five shall be representatives of labor organizations nominated by a State-wide labor federation, and not less than three shall be representatives of community-based organizations. These minimum requirements for labor and community-based organization representation reflect the current membership of the SETC.
