xxxx,
Thank you for your email. Sen. Berger is still in full support of House bill 383 which kept the ESC extended benefits available. Since this is such an urgent matter we had this bill ratified in a special Satruday session and put on the governor’s desk for her approval. Unfortunatley the governor vetoed the bill.

House bill 383 is a two part bill. It extends unemployment benefits in a timely manner to ensure that no additional harm is brought to our families that are already struggling. But keep in mind that this situation sheds light on a bigger problem that may rear its ugly head again in June, which is also addressed in HB383. In June if the governor and the legislature are unable to agree on a budget HB383 is simply providing a failsafe for government agencies, services, and payments continue to operate. HB383 puts a common sense plan in place that allows State Government and agencies to operate in the wake of the governor’s well used veto stamp. This will help us avoid a much bigger catastrophe then what we are facing currently.

The bill is currently residing in the House. We are hopeful that the governor will release 4 democrats to vote with the majority for a veto over-ride that will restore benefits.


On behalf of Sen. Berger,

I swear if they leave on thursday without even addressing it then that will be it for me. We can't put any more heat on them than what's going on now. We should at least hear some rumblings of conversations about it at least this week after the beating they are taking in the media.

Meanwhile this morning, I was reminded that CARING people exist. Instead of an eviction notice being placed on our door. We just received a letter taped to our door that said "PLEASE CALL ME" from our landlord. my roommate called and found out that he is willing to take any any amount this month with the remainder being deffered until June. But whats even more amazing is that he told us that he offered our former roommate a job managing his properties. Which means she will be able to move back in and help us with the rent. This is truely GOD's blessing.

Exact same letter I received from someone a week and half ago. In other words they aren't doing anything until their budget is passed.
Horrible excuse for humans.

Good thinking, Infowanted!

These guys are shady, someone marked my email as spam. I am getting failure notices. I went to look up my IP and it says it was reported last week for spam. Hmmm, just when I was sending out all those emails. And I didn't bombard them, each person at most got 2-3 emails from me last week.

Was it a week or so ago that Nesbitt said he had an idea on how to get the bill moving? Did he ever reveal what that idea was?
