    The Illinois Workforce Investment Board (IWIB) established the Transportation and Logistics Task Force on December 9, 2005 to develop recommendations for addressing the causes of worker shortages in transportation and logistics as documented in regional reports from the Critical Skill Shortages Initiative (CSSI). The task force was asked to focus on issues that required state level action. The IWIB requested that the task force present findings and recommendations at the September 2006 IWIB meeting.
