Certainly one topic that I've heard bubbling up is the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act)....  I think it would be great for us to learn more about this, especially as it affects youth in high school and how their schools help them pursue community employment.

I agree.  Another topic may be the ABLE to Work Act.  If passed, it would allow people with disabilities to save their paychecks from employment in an ABLE account exceeding the current annual ABLE  contribution.  This could be life-changing for many.
