The ESC website is being updated right now.

Gov. Perdue has signed Executive Order 93, restoring Extended Benefits
(EB) to those who are eligible. The ESC is working quickly to respond to
the order. ESC anticipates paying a majority of those eligible claimants
by next week. Others who qualify, may require additional assistance. The
ESC will have extended hours for our call center next week and
additional information will be provided later today on our website.

As for why now. To be honest she may have been able to do it all along, but it is possible she did not know she could. She would not want to jump to do something without researching if it was allowed or not.
When I say backfire, I mean come election time. There was needless suffering going on for thousands.

Read my last part again.. If you dont know you have the authority to do something, do you just jump on it, or wait and check. Which would be worst for her, to knowingly try to take extra powers, or to wait and see if she has the powers.

I understood your point, but it does not take 7 weeks to research it. It should have been a top priority. I am sure it could have been done in a week or two tops.
