White House aide Ivanka Trump July 12 met with the House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Rep. Virginia Foxx to discuss workforce development efforts, an official told Bloomberg Law.
“Chairwoman Foxx and Ivanka Trump met to update each other on ongoing workforce development priorities for both Congress and the administration, including the status of legislation to reform career and technical education,” committee spokeswoman Kelley McNabb told Bloomberg Law.
As chairwoman, Foxx (R-N.C), is tasked with setting the committee’s agenda, which has included hearings about job training. That includes the May 9 subcommittee hearing titled “Closing the Skills Gap: Private sector solutions for America’s workforce.”
The July 12 meeting comes as the Trump administration encourages expanding apprenticeship programs. President Donald Trump in June 2017 issued an executive order that directs the Labor Department to improve industry flexibility and expand earn-as-you-learn job training opportunities.
The House in the coming weeks is expected to vote on a fiscal year 2019 Labor-Health and Human Services bill that sets discretionary spending for agencies including the Labor Department. That bill includes some of the suggestions the Trump administration proposed in February as part of its proposed fiscal year 2019 budget, including additional funds for apprenticeship programs.
McNabb added that the July 12 meeting didn’t include discussions about paid family leave. The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment.
The first daughter’s meeting occurred a day after she attended a hearing on a federal paid family leave before the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Social Security, Pensions, and Family Policy.
Ivanka has been the Trump administration’s key advocate for paid family leave, encouraging lawmakers to find a solution, including several meetings with lawmakers in recent months.
The Trump administration has supported the idea of a national paid family leave program through expanded tax credits for businesses that offer workers leave, and funding in the budget for states to establish paid family leave programs.
