designed for education and employment related services.
    (c)  The Council shall be  responsible  for  the  overall
identification  of  human investment needs and priorities for
workforce preparation in the State and shall recommend to the
General Assembly and the Governor the goals for meeting these
needs.  The Council shall  coordinate  the  establishment  of
advisory    statewide   performance   goals   for   workforce

establishing  itself as a body independent of any other State
agency or organization.  Issues to  be  considered  in  those
deliberations  include,  but  are  not  limited to, the costs
associated with establishing a new organization, staffing and
other personnel issues, and consolidation of  other  councils
into  the  Human  Resource  Investment  Council.  The Council
shall  issue  a  report   on   its   discussions   and   make
recommendations  to  the General Assembly and the Governor on
whether and how to proceed.
