1) COVID Recovery & Workforce Modernization Act of 2021: Doug Riggs w/ Equity Action Partners (Legislative Advocate for Oregon Workforce Partnership) Doug will present on SB623 (sponsored by Senator Lew Frederick and co-sponsored by Representative Jeff Reardon).
Learn about a Bill that the Executive Directors from the 9 boards across the state have developed in response to the shortfalls in the delivery of workforce services in the State of Oregon. It is believed that stronger oversight, review and action could have prevented what what has been seen with the basic collapse of the Unemployment Insurance system during the pandemic. This bill points out and is intended to resolve the inefficiencies in data collection, system administration, resource utilization, and simply the lack of respect and dignity in the delivery of services to Oregonians.
