Senate to Debate UI System Reform Bill

Today the Massachusetts State Senate is set to debate an unemployment insurance system reform bill in an effort to provide much needed assistance to our small businesses.  The measure that will be taken up today will change the rate table for employers based on worker retention; however, there are more ways to strengthen the system further.

I filed, along with the Senate Republican Caucus, several amendments to the bill to do just that.  To read the actual text of the bill or all of the amendments filed please click here.
