ABSTRACT
The article reports on the loss of California's authority to approve state apprenticeship programs with any federal funding. Based on the decision of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), all projects in California receiving federal funds must seek approval from the agency. A DOL review board agreed with the 2005 decision of an administrative law judge that the state's apprenticeship laws did not conform with federal law.
