Subject: COVID-19: Retroactive Unemployment Compensation Solvency
In the last few months, we have worked to help keep local infrastructures and businesses afloat and Pennsylvanians safe as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, there is still so much more that can be done – self-insured entities, such as community transit, non-profits, and municipalities, are being required to stay open but face bankruptcy.  These essential businesses provide critical services to the public and are necessary for a successful phased re-opening of the state.
My legislation aims to assist these entities by allowing them to pay Unemployment Compensation solvency fees retroactive to 2020 amid extraordinary pandemic circumstances.  This would help prevent insolvency and possible bankruptcy, keeping indispensable services open and ready to serve the public.
As members of the General Assembly, it is our duty to do all we can to support our constituents.  By providing various means of assistance for essential services, like community transit and non-profit organizations, we can continue towards a strong phased re-opening.  Please join me in co-sponsoring this much-needed legislation. 

Introduced as HB2708
