The Oakland City Council on Tuesday delayed action on a proposal to give city funds to several private job-training organizations.
The proposed ordinance, authored by City Councilwoman Desley Brooks, would take a percentage of various public funds and give the money to several groups that provide vocational training to Oakland residents. Last week, the city attorney said the legislation could violate state and federal laws.
But Brooks on Tuesday deleted language that specified three potential sources of the funds — the gas tax and two voter-approved bond measures. She said doing so would take care of any legal issues.
