2011 House Bill 4408: Reduce future unemployment benefits

Passed 24 to 13 in the Senate on March 23, 2011.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To reduce from 26 weeks to 20 weeks the amount of time a laid off employee can collect state unemployment insurance (UI) benefits, beginning in 2012, which reportedly would save the system around $240 million annually. Michigan has borrowed $3.8 billion from the federal government to pay-out benefits boosted by higher unemployment and a 2002 law that boosted benefit levels; repaying the money imposes higher taxes on employers. The bill would also retroactively include current beneficiaries under a 20 week federal benefit extension (from 79 to 99 weeks), and use money recovered from fraud investigations to pay for new fraud and overpayment prevention measures and software.
