It will be extended, but it's looking to be a bumpy ride to get there. In the meantime, everyone will be able to get their EB payment for the week ending 4/16. Payments will happen as usual next week.

From what I see, the maximum number of weeks will be the same as it is now. 20 weeks, if unemployment rate in NC is above 8%, 13 weeks, if it's between 6.5% and 8%. And of course, the Total Unemployment Rate will still need to be at least 110% of the comparable 3-month period in one of the previous 3 years when the EB trigger update bill is passed. And all of EUC and EB is expected to expire at the end of 2011.

Hang on, everybody. Don't panic regardless of newspaper headlines.

No, they're not. Are you forgetting House Bill 676, a perfectly clean bill introduced by Representative William Wainwright that dealt ONLY with the EB trigger issue? What excuse did the Republicans have for not expediting that through the Commerce and Job Development Committee? Bill 676 was introduced days before Republicans took action to add the EB trigger update to a completely unrelated bill.

Democrats did not unanimously shoot down Bill 383 just to make a point. They did it because they did not want to be coerced into giving Republicans everything they want in budget negotiations. That budget affects the entire state of North Carolina. Many people stand to be hurt if Democrats have no power to object to whatever Republicans propose.

If Purdue vetoes the bill, what are the chances that legislature will vote to override the veto?

I guess they will see if they can can get a 2/3 rd vote. They'll probably take a vote just to see if they can get 2/3rds. But if not I don't think anything can happen after that. The line has been drawn in the sand . 676 won't come close to being passed because another line will be drawn. This is a horrible situation unless they can talk this out and fix 383 where both sides will approve.

I hope and pray, and each of us here must do that also. I believe that something good will happen out of this big "storm" situation before us today. Don't lose hope here...
