Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Chapter 1, Title 13 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
Section 13-1-2010. The General Assembly finds that the State's current workforce development system is fragmented among numerous agencies, councils, boards, and committees, with inadequate overall coordination. No comprehensive strategic plan guides the different parts of the system, there is no single point of leadership and responsibility, and there is insufficient guidance from employers and workers built into the system to ensure that the system is responsive to the needs of its customers.
The General Assembly recognizes that we must make certain that our public institutions of education place appropriate emphasis on the needs of employers and on the needs of young people who enter the world of work without completing a four-year program of higher education. We must make our workforce development system better coordinated, more efficient, more responsive to the needs of business and workers and local communities, more accountable for its performance, and more open to the needs of a diverse population.
