This is the third in a series of four papers on issues related to the implementation of Texas Senate Bill 642, the Workforce and Economic Competitiveness Act of 1993. This series focuses on the most important elements of the workforce system outlined in Senate Bill 642. The individual papers are not written as technical assistance guides. Rather, each describes a key component of the new system and explores the major opportunities and challenges associated with its implementation. Together, they provide a framework and offer a possible course of action for those who see the advantages of building an integrated workforce system in Texas.
