U.S. Senate Workforce Innovation Act Bill to be Introduced Soon

There is credible news that a Senate version of the Workforce Innovation Act (H.R. 7307) will likely be introduced in early July by Senator Wyden (D-OR) and Senator Blackburn (R-TN). Like the House bill, the Senate bill would scale up community-based workforce programs, including partnerships between Community Health Centers and schools, preceptorships, and career laddering programs. NACHC is currently working to add additional Republican cosponsors to the House bill and Republican co-leads to the Senate bill.
