This memorandum has been prepared in response to your request for information on H.R. 4297, the Workforce Investment Improvement Act of 2012, which would reauthorize and amend the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA; P.L. 105-220). Specifically, you requested an analysis of the H.R. 4297 provisions related to the “State Unified Plan,” which would allow a state to apply for the authority to consolidate funding from various non-WIA programs. This memorandum briefly describes WIA, describes the provisions in current law related to state unified plans, and then describes the changes that H.R. 4297 would make to current provisions.
