Anyway,,,, they are sticking to the information that anyone that wasn't on EB before APRIL 16th will NOT get any retroactive payments if it's reinstated.

So I'm in the process of contacting a reporter in Charlotte to let them know this additional information so they can at least have the truth.

1. The 37000 people that are listed in reports are people that were already on EB.
2. People that weren't already on EB are not being counted in the reports. (As of now that's going on two weeks worth )
3. Retroactive payments as of now does not apply to anyone that has exhausted their EUC benefits after April 16th.


I hope this changes , I'm not sure what other states did about this but I'm also not sure if it matters since it's a state matter.
I think contacting the reporter is a good idea, LanahB. A lot of legislators are probably not aware that there won't be blanket retroactivity for everybody. They should be told.

Would it light a fire under their butts? That's federal money forever lost to NC.

I know, NCEB. They had mentioned something yesterday about holding a "skeleton" session today because of some scheduled event they have. They convene again tomorrow at 9:00 AM. Today at 2:00PM the Democratic Legislators in the House have the meeting concerning the EB benefits.

I bet if it was their pay they wouldn't leave till it was resolved. They are now in committee discussing the budget and then there's the unemployment meeting that none of the unemployed people can afford to buy gas to attend. Maybe something this week or next or next or next. Too much bickering. We are all North Carolinian's are we not? Just like the feds we are all American, right? Suck it up and do whats right. SUPPORT THOSE THAT ELECTED YOU!

Will there be an audio feed of the 2:00 meeting? Any chance it will be televised live?

Or maybe on 5:00 news?
