She would have vetoed the budget (and still might) if there were not those in her party that say enough is enough. Then it would drag on even longer. Then again she could have done this because she knows the budget will pass with or without her support.

So, I think it should be possible...hopefully it's not, and hopefully the Republicans don't put up a fight.

I got one quote from Perdue where she said she would not allow "political opponents" to use the unemployed as "pawns" any longer. She just realized this NOW!? The fact that this option to use an executive order was available the entire time, sickens me. She's governor, she had to have known she could use it. But in this case, she held back until she needed to use it politically...in this case, it was when she knew she had defectors within her own party that were going to pass the veto-proof budget.

Had there not been democrat defectors and she knew she could've vetoed this latest legislation...do any of you think she would've dragged this out even longer and not issued an executive order today? She oughta look in the mirror if she thinks it's just her opponents using the unemployed as pawns.

Why did Perdue wait 7 wks?

From press sec Chris Mackey: "She gave Republican leaders a chance to do the right thing and they didn’t. So she found another solution.”

Not good enough Perdue, you could have found this solution in May. For Christ sake the repub's demonstrated several times they were not going to release the stand alone bill that sat in committee since March.

From Nesbitt's office:

Helloó

I am contacting you today because you have been in contact with either myself, Senator Martin Nesbitt, or a Democratic member of the North Carolina Senate in the past two months about the interruption of your extended unemployment benefits. As you know, your benefits ended because the Republicans who controlled the General Assembly refused to act on a standalone bill, SB 584, that would have extended the benefits using 100 percent federal funds.

This morning, Gov. Bev Perdue issued an executive order to restore the extended unemployment benefits that you had lost. As you may know, restoring these unemployment benefits means you are able to both (1) continue receiving unemployment benefits, up to week 99 of unemployment, and (2) retroactively qualify for any weekly benefits you may have qualified for but didnít receive due to the interruption in benefits.

While I do not have any details about how the benefits you are eligible for will be distributed, I did want to share this good news with you.

I also want to encourage you to contact the North Carolina Employment Security Commission at 1-888-737-0259 or http://www.ncesc.com for any questions you might have about the unemployment benefits you may be qualified for.

Below is a copy of the news release Gov. Perdue issued announcing her executive order. Iíve also attached a copy of her executive order.

Sincerely,

Jeff

It takes time to trickle down. He said he called the local office, not the central line.

Yes it is. They just moved it off the main page. If you put your mouse on individual services, in the drop down selections it is under unemployment insurance extended benefits
