§2070.  Authority

A.  The provisions of this Chapter shall not be construed so as to impair or diminish the constitutional authority of the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, including budgetary responsibility for all funds appropriated or allocated for technical schools or adult education under its jurisdiction, or the Board of Regents.  However, such boards shall cooperate in the development of the council's strategic plan.

B.  Whenever a dispute arises between the Louisiana Workforce Investment Council and either the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education or the Board of Regents over their workforce development operational plan or budget, either party may petition the Senate and House committees on labor and industrial relations to meet as a joint committee for a public hearing on the matter.  The joint committee, following such hearing, shall make recommendations to the governor and the commissioner of administration.
