FOREWORD

This compilation of selected laws relating to employment and training is a document that will be very useful to Members of Congress and their staffs in the consideration of future legislation. Other interested individuals will also find this a valuable publication.

Included in this document are up-to-date compilations of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act, the Economic Opportunity Act, and the Legal Services Corporation Act-major statutes which must be acted upon by the Labor and Public Welfare Committee early in 1977 as the Committee considers the extension of expiring authorization legislation.
