A job-training reform law, aggressively sought by industry the last few years, is about to become reality. That was assured July 31 when the House and Senate both approved a conference-committee bill that, among other things, consolidates numerous federal training programs, creates a network of "one-stop" career centers, allows for "skill grants," and calls for business participation in designing local training programs and assuring their quality. The measure now goes to President Clinton, who is certain to sign it. In a statement hailing passage of the legislation, he said the bill "will modernize job training to fit the needs of today's economy."
