|Subject:||Additional Unemployment Funding for COVID-19|
|Please join me as a co-sponsor of legislation to provide additional short-term funding to alleviate the delays with the unemployment compensation system experienced by individuals who are suffering from employment or business interruptions due to COVID-19- related business closures.
Under this legislation, $20 million of federal CARES Act funding would be appropriated from the COVID-19 Response Restricted Account for the hiring of temporary employees and expenses related to information management technology, communications technology and other infrastructure components within the Department of Labor and Industry.
I look forward to working with you on this important legislation.
Introduced as HB2690
