Virginia Board of Workforce Development; labor market information.

The measure also transfers from the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) to the Board, with support from VEC, the responsibility to determine and publish a list of jobs, trades, and professions for which high demand for qualified workers exists or is projected.
