Perdue still hoping for clean jobless benefits bill - Barry Smith - In the Loop
I wish the legislators would add one tiny little amendment to House Bill 676: that the benefits be retroactive for those who would have been eligible to sign up for EB if the program had been in effect from April 17 to whenever it is finally reauthorized. My understanding is that as it currently stands, only those who had already been approved for EB will receive back payments.

I'm wondering when Raleigh is going to start adding numbers to the initial 37,000 of us who were cut off. They really don't seem to realize that every week our number is growing!

The leadership is not going to tender a clean bill. At issue is how much compromise on the budget will allow the EB rider on that bill to be passed into law. That is where the compromise comes in, and that is where it will stay unless and until both sides reach some accord. This could happen. It could happen as early as next week. the fact that each side is still talking means that two weejs after the fact, it ain't over.

Exactly. The Gov doesn't seem to have a firm grasp of what is happening here. Can someone get to her and explain to her that every week more of the unemployed are getting cut off? Surely she must realize this, but by her comment it doesn't appear as though she does.

Then again Bev doesn't strike me as the sharpest tool in the shed.

It seems important little details like this are often missed by both the media and politicians. It's so much easier for them to say, "Benefits will be paid retroactively," than to put a little asterisk by that statement and explain, "Well, that's not exactly true for everybody. It's not true for those who had the misfortune of needing to apply for EB at the exact time there was a gap in EB coverage in NC."

Was able to file again this morning on my EB claim, so if this is ever settled I may get some retroactive payments. Not counting on it! Must move on, and keep applying. Definitely staying away from any State positions, don't need another layoff in a few months!

In your correspondence with these leaders, please mention the retroactivity issue for those not on EB when it was cut off.

I have also been mentioning in my emails to everyone that every week we go on, thousands are being added to the 37,000 that they keep mentioning in the media.

Getting the media to report this would be helpful too.

I am on tier 1 and when I did my weekly certification this morning it said accepted for processing but usually says accepted for payment. Anyone have any idea what if anything this means? Thanks in advance.

What was that Rep. Stam said about not wanting to hold teachers and other state employees hostage to budget negotiations? Why doesn't it bother him to hold us hostage?
