2013 House Bill 4949: Unemployment insurance reform package (Senate Roll Call 425)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 35 to 3 in the Senate on October 17, 2013, to increase the potential sanctions for taking unemployment benefits to which a person is not entitled. However, the bill would require, rather than just permit, the state unemployment benefits agency to waive recovery of improperly paid benefits when the payment was not the recipient's fault and repayment would be "contrary to equity and good conscience".
