NOW, THEREFORE, I, CHRISTOPHER S. BOND, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of Missouri, hereby create and establish the Missouri Job Training Coordinating Council (MJTCC) to consist of such members, not to exceed thirty, as may from time to time be appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate.

Members of the MJTCC shall serve at the pleasure of the Governor.
In accordance with Public Law 97-300, Section 122 (b) (1-8), (c), the functions of the MJTCC shall be as follows:

3. Advise the Governor and local entities on job training plans and certify the consistency of such plans with criteria under the Governor's coordination and special services plan for coordination of activities under this Act with other federal, state and local employment-related programs, including programs operated in designated enterprise zones;
4. Review the operation of programs conducted in each service delivery area, and the availability, responsiveness, and adequacy of state services, and make recommendations to the Governor, appropriate chief elected officials and private industry councils, service providers, the General Assembly, and the general public with respect to ways to improve the effectiveness of such programs or services;
5. Review and comment on the State plan developed for the State employment service agency;

7. Identify, in coordination with the appropriate state agencies, the employment and training and vocational education needs throughout the state, and assess the extent to which employment and training, vocational education, rehabilitation services, public assistance, economic development, and other federal, state, and local programs and services represent a consistent, integrated, and coordinated approach to meeting such needs;
8. Comment at least once annually on the reports required pursuant to section 105 (d) (3) of the Vocational Education Act of 1963; and

As provided by federal law, the functions of the Private Industry Council for Balance of State-Missouri, the State Youth Employment Council and the State Employment and Training Council will expire on September 30, 1983; therefore, this Order shall be effective upon execution and shall supercede any and all Executive Orders pertaining to the same subjects, including Reorganization Plan No. 11 of 1980 and Executive Order 80-8, Reorganization Plan No. 12 of 1980 and Executive Order 80-9, and Reorganization Plan No. 13 and Executive Order 80-10.
