In California, Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) has proposed the Entrepreneurial Training Improvement Act of 2012 to enable would-be entrepreneurs to obtain training from local Workforce Investment Boards. Capps says U.S. Department of Labor guidelines for Workforce Investment Boards focus on traditional job creation and placement, but her bill aims to help job seekers create their own businesses.
