End Skilled Worker Outreach, Recruitment, and Key Training Act Grants Transfer Money To General Fund
The act precludes the department of labor and employment from accepting applications for, awarding, or issuing grants under the "Skilled Worker Outreach, Recruitment, and Key Training Act", also known as the "WORK Act", on or after the effective date of the act. The grant review committee is directed to submit a final report on the WORK Act grant program to the governor and specified legislative committees by August 31, 2021.
The state treasurer is directed to transfer any balance in the WORK fund as of September 1, 2020, and September 1, 2021, to the general fund. The program is repealed on September 30, 2021.
The act adjusts the 2020 long bill by eliminating the $3.3 million general fund appropriation for the WORK Act grant program.
