Subject: Improving Pennsylvania’s Unemployment Compensation System
Legislative offices across the Commonwealth receive calls and emails every day from constituents who have applied for unemployment compensation but never received their checks. Millions of Pennsylvanians have lost their jobs during this pandemic through no fault of their own, and it is unacceptable that so many people are being forced to wait weeks or months with no payments and no answers.

We need to act now to fix our unemployment compensation system. My resolution would create a bipartisan, bicameral legislative commission composed of experts who can gather information about problems in the system and identify solutions. Many of our constituents are experiencing dire financial circumstances and this issue must be addressed urgently.

I hope that you will join me in cosponsoring this resolution to improve Pennsylvania’s unemployment compensation system.
