H.R. 1950, the Apprenticeship Enhancement Act of 2001, requires a federal mandate of timely response to apprenticeship program approval applications in states with apprenticeship councils. The Alliance, how-ever, feels that this measure would make broader changes and would impair the effectiveness of the bal-ance of federal apprenticeship policy.
