This document reports the oral testimony and prepared statements of persons who testified about proposed amendments to the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) during three hearings in March 1989. The proposed legislation would divide youth and adult services under JTPA, move some services from one segment to another, and increase funding for both adult and youth components. The hearing report includes an introductory statement by Senator Paul Simon, chairman of the subcommittee; text of the legislation (S. 543) as introduced; and a summary and section-by-section analysis of the bill. Persons who testified included representatives of the United States Conference of Mayors, National Association of Counties, and National Governors' Association, as well as representatives of the National Association of Private Industry Councils and city and county employment officials of Los Angeles. Testimony centered on success stories of JTPA, areas that need improvement, the tendency to "cream" in JTPA programs to make results look good, and the need for additional funding. (KC)
