http://www.ajc.com/news/georgia-politics-elections/georgia-could-cut-jobless-1190183.htmlGeorgia borrowed $721 million from Washington to help the unemployed survive the lousy economy and now, as the bills come due, it may repay the debt by cutting back on jobless benefits.
The state Labor Department will send a $21.4 million check to Washington this week, the first payment on debt run up since late 2009. Labor Commissioner Mark Butler is weighing a slew of repayment options, but strongly hinted he favors cutting benefits -- both the weekly amount and the number of weeks of eligibility.
Here we go again. Do they think we are out of the recession an the jobs picture is better??
Thanks to all members for participating in the discussions.
Personally, I don't know why the Federal Government would allow it. Let them defer the loan until the employment crisis is ended, really ended.
