WHEREAS, the >>October,<<1[[September,]] 2011 unemployment rate for MiamiDade County was >>10.7<< [[11.5]] percent, with approximately >>143,210<< [[150,000]] residents out of work; and
WHEREAS, South Florida Workforce is a local workforce agency and a public-private partnership that establishes state and federally funded workforce development and training policies for Miami-Dade and Monroe counties; and
WHEREAS, local workforce agencies such as South Florida Workforce provide >>employment and training<< services [[and resources]] to anyone at no cost through a network of career centers located throughout the region; and
WHEREAS, current state law does not require an unemployed person to complete >>the on-line employment registration application through Employ Florida Marketplace<< [[an
application with the local workforce agency]] prior to receiving unemployment compensation from the state; and
WHEREAS, it is anticipated that legislation will be filed for the Florida Legislature’s 2012 session that would require an unemployed person to complete >>the on-line employment registration application through Employ Florida Marketplace<< [[an application with the local workforce agency]] prior to receiving unemployment compensation from the state; and
WHEREAS, local workforce agencies such as South Florida Workforce can provide assistance to people who are out of work, but are unable to assist unemployed people who have not >>completed the on-line registration application through Employ Florida Marketplace<< [[applied]] for employment >>services<< [[with them]]; and
WHEREAS, if more unemployed people are in the local workforce agencies’ systems then more people can be assisted to find new jobs; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
