Time for Action (long overdue) on Unemployment Comp Reform


This week the House Insurance Committee continued its hearings on House Bill 394, the Unemployment Compensation Insurance Reform bill, sponsored by Rep. Barbara Sears (R-Monclova Township).  The committee began reviewing potential amendment ideas brought forward by Rep. Sears to address portions of the bill that have drawn opposition, particularly from labor. OMA prepared this document to shed light on what exactly HB 394 does – and does not – do. Now is the time for member engagement:  If you haven’t already, please contact your state representative and let them know they have your support for the reform measures contained in the bill.  The easiest way to do this is by using the email tools at the OMA’s Manufacturing Advocacy Center.
