SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) enacted in August 1998, reformed Federal job training programs and created a new, comprehensive workforce investment system. The legislation replaced the Job Training Partnership Act and amended the Wagner-Peyser Act. WIA authorization for appropriations expired on September 30, 2003. Although WIA reauthorization bills passed the House and the Senate, the reauthorization legislation was not enacted, and Congress continued to annually authorize and fund these programs through annual appropriations. In the absence of reauthorizing legislation, the Department published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on December 20, 2006, to implement several policy changes to the Workforce Investment Act and Wagner-Peyser Act regulations. (71 FR 76558). Subsequently, in February 2007, Congress enacted language in the revised Continuing Resolution (Pub. L. 110–5, sec. 20601(a)(4)), prohibiting the Department from finalizing or implementing any proposed regulations under the Workforce Investment Act until legislation reauthorizing the Act is enacted. The prohibition has been reenacted annually, most recently in the Department of Labor Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111–8, Div. G, sec. 110). II. Withdrawal of the Proposed Rule The Department has decided to withdraw the proposed rule based upon the continuing Congressional prohibition against publishing a rule until the Workforce Investment Act is reauthorized. The Department notes, E:\FR\FM\19AUP1.SGM 19AUP1 41816 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 159 / Wednesday, August 19, 2009 / Proposed Rules however, that the withdrawal of this proposed rule does not preclude it from reinstituting rulemaking concerning the issues addressed in the proposal at a future date.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) enacted in August 1998, reformed 
Federal job training programs and created a new, comprehensive 
workforce investment system. The legislation replaced the Job Training 
Partnership Act and amended the Wagner-Peyser Act. WIA authorization 
for appropriations expired on September 30, 2003. Although WIA 
reauthorization bills passed the House and the Senate, the 
reauthorization legislation was not enacted, and Congress continued to 
annually authorize and fund these programs through annual 
appropriations.
    In the absence of reauthorizing legislation, the Department 
published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on December 20, 2006, 
to implement several policy changes to the Workforce Investment Act and 
Wagner-Peyser Act regulations. (71 FR 76558). Subsequently, in February 
2007, Congress enacted language in the revised Continuing Resolution 
(Pub. L. 110-5, sec. 20601(a)(4)), prohibiting the Department from 
finalizing or implementing any proposed regulations under the Workforce 
Investment Act until legislation reauthorizing the Act is enacted. The 
prohibition has been reenacted annually, most recently in the 
Department of Labor Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8, Div. G, 
sec. 110).

II. Withdrawal of the Proposed Rule

    The Department has decided to withdraw the proposed rule based upon 
the continuing Congressional prohibition against publishing a rule 
until the Workforce Investment Act is reauthorized. The Department 
notes,

[[Page 41816]]

however, that the withdrawal of this proposed rule does not preclude it 
from reinstituting rulemaking concerning the issues addressed in the 
proposal at a future date. Should a future rulemaking ensue, the 
Department will provide a new opportunity for public comment on such a 
proposal.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 12th day of August 2009.
