Democrats argue that now is not the time to reduce benefits in the state, which was one of the hardest hit in the recession. Michigan's unemployment rate continues to hover around 10 percent.

"This legislation allows us to have a serious debate about how to help jobseekers keep food on their table while they look for their next job," said Hunter. "By restoring these benefits, we can help families and the local businesses that rely on them to buy goods and services."

Maybe I am just paranoid because of the legislation introduced last week in the House and Senate to divert benefits from the individuals and put that money in the hands of the state, but I am curious if this has anything to do with that.

Rep. Levin [D] MI was very vocal in his opinion about the bicameral legislation that could end the current tier structure as we now know it.
