    The statute, as amended, requires the Secretary, acting through the

[[Page 34697]]

Peyser Act, and of the statewide systems that comprise the nationwide 
system, and (2) how the Department and the States will cooperate in the 
management of those systems. The Secretary, acting through the Bureau 
of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the Employment and Training 
Administration (ETA), and in consultation with the WIAC and appropriate 
Federal agencies, must also develop a 2-year plan for management of the 
system, with subsequent updates every two years thereafter. The statute 
generally prescribes how the plan is to be developed and implemented, 
outlines the contents of the plan, and requires the Secretary to submit 
the plan to designated authorizing committees in the House and Senate.
    By law, the Secretary must ``solicit, review, and evaluate'' 
recommendations from the WIAC, and respond to the recommendations in 
writing to the WIAC. The WIAC must make written recommendations to the 
Secretary on the evaluation and improvement of the workforce and labor 
market information system, including recommendations for the 2-year 
plan. The 2-year plan, in turn, must describe WIAC recommendations and 
the extent to which the plan incorporates them.
    The Department anticipates that the WIAC will accomplish its 
objectives by, for example: (1) Studying workforce and labor market 
information issues; (2) seeking and sharing information on innovative 
approaches, new technologies, and data to inform employment, skills 
training, and workforce and economic development decision making and 
policy; and (3) advising the Secretary on how the workforce and labor 
market information system can best support workforce development, 
planning, and program development.

development boards, who has been nominated by a national organization 
representing such boards; and
    (viii) One member who is a representative of research entities that 
use workforce and labor market information.
    The Secretary must ensure that the membership of the WIAC is 
geographically diverse, and that no two members appointed under clauses 
(i), (ii), and (vii), above, represent the same State. Each member will 
be appointed for a term of three years, except that the initial terms 
for members may be one, two, or three years in order to establish a 
rotation. The Secretary will not appoint a member for any more than two 
consecutive terms. Any member whom the Secretary appoints to fill a 
vacancy occurring before the expiration of the predecessor's term will 
be appointed only for the remainder of that term. Members of the WIAC 
will serve on a voluntary and generally uncompensated basis, but will 
be reimbursed for travel expenses to attend WIAC meetings, including
