These are all losses for the unemployed where there have been no signs of job recovery -- only continued job eliminations.

But the Governor needs the approval of the New Jersey State legislature to do any of that -- and to date they have been staunchly opposed to these changes.


OK, Thanks for clarifying. Like i said, I didn't read but 2 or 3 of the post.

I for one am tired of having the middle class represented by the upper class and follow the "rule of law" that they apply to us.
By cutting from those least able to afford it how else is Governor Christie going to fund the tax cut handout to the wealthy top 2% ?

Default NJ State Senate Bill Ignores Christie's Proposed UI Cuts

A committee in the New Jersey State Senate today approved a bill intended to maintain the state's unemployment benefits -- without any of the cutbacks proposed by Governor Chris Christie.

Instead of cutting benefits, the bill enables the state to borrow more money from the federal government to avoid a $1 billion tax increase for businesses that would have been required beginning on July 1, 2010, in order to support New Jersey's bankrupt insurance fund.

The bill passed 4-2 along partisan lines -- but it still has to be approved by an Assembly committee, passed by both houses of the Legislature, and signed into law by Governor Christie.

The New Jersey State Senate today approved a bill (S-1813) that would raise taxes on businesses by $300 million rather than the $1 billion that would automatically kick in to lessen the insolvency of the state's unemployment insurance fund.

The bill does not include any "take-aways" from the benefits provided to the state's unemployed -- "take-aways" which have been proposed by Governor Chris Christie as an alternative to raising taxes on employers.

Christie has not said whether he will sign the bill into law.

Good now maybe we can get some sort fixing of the system instead of trying to hurt the poor people who cannot afford to miss a check or have benefits reduced. When you are millionaire who cares about a week delay and 50 dollars right Christie?

While he proposes to further insult the already injured he is refusing to tax the wealthiest New Jerseans. Is he a representative of the PEOPLE or of a cretain class of privileged individuals? How many more of these BLUEBLOODS must we accept as our leaders?

NorthJersey.com: Senate passes bill to ease tax increase on businesses for state unemployment fund
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has conditionally vetoed a bill to limit the impact of an unemployment tax increase on businesses.

Christie says the reduced increase in the unemployment tax on businesses effective July 1 -- $130 per worker, instead of the $400 per worker originally called for -- is acceptable. But he wants more done to reform the state's unemployment insurance program, including changes to make it harder for people fired for misconduct to collect benefits. He also wants to establish a task force to study the problems with the state's unemployment insurance fund and to recommend solutions.

Senate President Stephen Sweeney said he expects the Senate to accept Christie's conditions.
