There’s about a month left for legislators to get anything done before the new year. As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, there’s one issue that the top Senate leader specifically wants to move forward in that time.
Senate President Larry Obhof says it’s time to pass a bill that reforms the state’s unemployment compensation program.
The House and Senate have been trying to work up a plan that would bring the fund that the state uses to pay jobless benefits to solvency. And while Obhof acknowledges it’s a polarizing issue, he says it’s time to get it moving.
