1 NASWA LEGISLATIVE UPDATE Marc Katz Congressional Affairs Director Unemployment Insurance Committee, May 14,

2 UI and A&F Joint Meeting July 9-10, 2015 Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile hotel at the rate of $ Additional Information: Click Here. Purpose: UI Administrative Funding 2

3 SIGNIFICANT ISSUES OVER 12 MONTHS UI Consortium Language: Includes retroactive language (to fiscal year 2011) providing consortium states with an additional year to spend their Unemployment Insurance Information Technology Modernization grants. State Set-Aside: The 15 percent State set-aside OR Governor s Reserve was increased from the current 8.75 percent to 10.0 percent. With the recent passage of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) reaffirming the 15 percent set-aside, NASWA and the National Governors Association believe there is an opportunity to secure the full 15 percent for Program Year 2015 with the new Congress in January. Workforce Innovation and Opportunity: Comments due June 15 High-Level Review: Please click here Preamble Questions: Please click here for the Preamble Questions. 3

4 Occupational Classification of Employees: Quarterly Wage Reports: Trade Bill The Trade Facilitation and Enforcement Act of 2015 (Trade Promotion Authority or Fast Track S. 1314) will be voted upon by the Senate today. It requires the occupational classification of employees when filing quarterly wage reports. 4

5 Trade Bill - CONTD Imposes costs on States and Employers. NASWA surveyed States. Providing the SOC Codes is Difficult and Expensive NASWA provided detailed Information to the Congressional Budget Office on the costs. CBO estimates that in total, this provision: Would cost $274 million over the period. Because those data are not currently collected, employers, states, and DOL would need to develop systems for reporting and collecting that information. Based on preliminary information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, developing those federal systems would cost $208 million over the period, CBO estimates. Outlook: The bill does not have sufficient votes to pass the and there is heightened concern about the SOC codes for States and Costs to employers. 5

6 WIOA NASWA Letter NASWA has sent the following letter to all states highlighting areas where guidance is needed and requesting input from states. It is slated to be sent to USDOL is the first week in February. The issues include the following: One-stop Procurement One Stop Infrastructure Funding Performance Accountability Information Systems Unemployment Insurance Ongoing Funding for Statewide Activities Redirection of Youth Grant Eligible Training Provider List 6

7 WIOA NPRM: UI Issues The NPRM Requires UI Assistance In The One-stop Centers With Either Onsite Staff Or By Phone Or Via Other Technology, as Long as Assistance Is Provided By Trained And Available Staff And Within A Reasonable Time. The Preamble Portrays The Regulation As Requiring A Separate Customer Service System For Customers In The One-stop Centers. In The Absence Of Additional Funding, The Regulation Should Be Clarified To Allow For UI Assistance Through Existing Customer Service Resources, Especially Those Currently Available By Internet Or Telephone.

9 UI Claimants Proposed new language was also added to (b)(3) to ensure that ES staff provide information about UI claimants ability or availability for work, or the suitability of work offered to them, to UI staff. According to the NPRM, sharing such information with UI staff will help accelerate claimants return to employment. 9

13 KEY PROVISIONS The fiscal 2015 appropriations bill provides $13.3 billion for USDOL, including $7.7 billion in direct appropriations and $4.0 billion from trust funds, primarily for black-lung benefits and the operating costs associated with the unemployment insurance program. The total includes $1.8 billion in advance appropriations for FY There is a 1.4 percent increase for each of the WIA formula programs for Adult, Youth and Dislocated Workers. There is no funding for the Administration s Workforce Innovation Fund. The Governor s Reserve was increased from 8.75% to 10%. Overall funding for Unemployment Insurance State Administration was reduced by 3.6 percent compared to fiscal year (This is due to declining workload) 13

14 HOW DOES A STATE MEET THE REQUIREMENT FOR UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THE ACT? In each local workforce investment area, in at least one comprehensive physical center, staff funded under the Act must provide labor exchange services (including staff-assisted labor exchange services) and career services as described in

26 Specific Guidance From Congress on USDOL Reports and Initiatives Report: Status of Consortium Efforts on Unemployment Insurance Information Technology Grants There is significant concern that automation acquisition being carried out through consortia of States has fallen critically behind schedule and that funds provided for this purpose, as far back as fiscal year 2011, are at risk of lapsing before the projects are completed. The Department is directed to collect and approve detailed automation acquisition plans for each project that include lifecycle systems cost estimates and implementation timelines, and to submit to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations a report by April 1 of each fiscal year, until funds available to consortia are expended or expire, that includes the status of all project funds and analysis of each project's progress toward executing the acquisition plan. 26

27 Specific Guidance From Congress on USDOL Reports and Initiatives Report: UI Overpayments The Office of Inspector General (OIG) plans to initiate a long-term, cyclical oversight program to independently review, on a prioritized basis, individual States' efforts to identify and recover UI overpayments. The OIG should conduct as many multi-state reviews as funding will allow in fiscal year 2015 and submit a report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 31, 2016 on the progress and effectiveness of this effort. 27
