Virginia's current unemployment rate is 6.1%, barely above the 6% trigger rate for EB. I have no knowledge of what is happening legislatively in VA, but doubt they are feeling much political pressure to pay EB with an unemployment rate this low.

NYTimes discusses the reluctance of certain states to correct their lookback.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/18/bu...s.html?_r=1&hp

Reasons range from not adding to the federal deficit to employer perceptions that people are refusing work until their benefits run out.

After finally correcting its lookback and a four-month lapse, Wisconsin has resumed EB payments. My account credited today for all back benefits since EUC exhausted in May.

WI will pay only 13 weeks EB and no longer pays Tier 4. At present unemployment rate is 7.6%, although nonseasonally adjusted rate is 8.4%.
