AN  ACT to amend the economic development law, in relation to establish-
  ing centers of workforce achievement

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative intent. The purpose of this act is to advance
the creation of public/private partnerships between the state university
of New York's community colleges and private businesses  by  instituting
the  designation  of centers of workforce achievement; the creation of a
designation of center of workforce achievement; the creation of a  fund-
ing  stream  to support the creation and development of these centers of
workforce development and training. The designation as a center of work-
force achievement will allow community colleges  to  form  collaborative
partnerships  with  regional  workforce  investment  boards,  industrial
development agencies, and private businesses to  accurately  assess  the
gap  between middle skill and high skills training and the jobs that are
available in each region.  Many community colleges are already  engaging
in  public/private  partnerships  with local businesses. It is estimated
that up to eighty percent of community college graduates remain  in  the
area  and  as  technologies  and industries evolve, our education system
must also evolve to create a workforce that is equipped with the  skills
to perform these new jobs.
  S  2.  The economic development law is amended by adding a new article
19-A to read as follows:
                              ARTICLE 19-A
                          CENTERS OF WORKFORCE
                           ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM
SECTION 415. CENTERS OF WORKFORCE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
