These rules provide the implementation of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) as it relates to the duties of the Commission and the Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs). This implementation accommodates prior consistent state laws as permitted by WIA. This integration of new federal law and prior existing state law will continue to promote and support Texas' ongoing workforce development reform efforts. WIA compliments Texas' reform efforts, which stress: (1) limited and efficient state government; (2) local control; (3) personal responsibility; and (4) support for strong families.
