Strategic plan coverAprobado por el Gobernador Abbott, el plan estratégico para el sistema de fuerza laboral de Texas fue desarrollado por el Consejo de Inversión de Fuerza Laboral de Texas y sus socios del sistema durante un período de 12 meses desde septiembre de 2014 hasta septiembre de 2015. El Código de Gobierno de Texas, Sección 2308.104, impone al Consejo el desarrollo de un plan estratégico único para el sistema de fuerza laboral del estado.
