Enzi Hearing To Find Solutions

Washington D-C – A Wyoming labor expert traveled to Washington to help Congress determine how best to prepare for the next big natural disaster, in the wake of the federal response to Hurricane Katrina.
Wyoming Senator Michael Enzi, chairman of the Senate Health Education Labor and Pensons Committee, outlined the challenges ahead in meeting the needs of evacuees by saying they want to be able to help victims support their families.
Enzi summoned more than 20 experts in the fields of health, education, and labor for a roundtable, to gather facts and ideas.
Charlie Ware from Cheyenne chairs Wyoming's public-private Workforce Development Council, and points to Florida's goal, for putting people back to work. Ware also suggests a clearinghouse be set up to match available
workers with jobs across the country.
