Enjoying unusual bi-partisan support by Congress, the legislation reforms and supersedes the existing Workforce Investment Act of 1998. The WIOA will continue to be the primary federal funding source for the City of Los Angeles Workforce Workforce Development System, comprised of the WorkSource and YouthSource Centers Network.President Obama speaking about the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act at the siging ceremony
