§ 902. Creation of Oklahoma Workforce Commission
There is hereby created the Oklahoma Workforce Commission. The purpose of the Commission is to coordinate the development of the workforce needed to grow Oklahoma's economy and Oklahomans' prosperity. To accomplish this purpose, the Commission is empowered to the fullest extent permitted by law to coordinate the funding and activities of each element of the state's workforce development programs, systems, and entities; to achieve better alignment, accountability, and results for the state's workforce development efforts; and to act as the principal point of contact regarding workforce development for public officials, businesses, and the public. In carrying out its work, the Commission shall consult officials, leaders, and experts in workforce development including, but not limited to, state and local agencies, departments, educational institutions, boards, commissions, the private sector, and other leaders and experts. The Commission shall convene advisory committees consisting of relevant state and local agencies, departments, educational institutions, boards, commissions, the private sector, and other officials as the Commission deems appropriate. It is the intent of the Legislature that the Commission shall serve as a coordinating body for workforce development entities in the state and that workforce development entities will fully participate in and cooperate with the Commission's activities, but the Commission shall not directly exercise governing control of state and local agencies, departments, educational institutions, boards, commissions, and other workforce development entities except as otherwise prescribed by law.
