2.  JLARC shall compete its study and submit a final report by December 15, 2014.
3.  All agencies of the Commonwealth shall provide assistance for this study upon request."

(This amendment expands the scope of the JLARC workforce training study authorized by the 2013 General Assembly to ensure that the funding is being used efficiently and effectively.)
