2011 unemployment bill
The bill, which could eliminate a newly instituted one-week waiting period on the receipt of unemployment benefits, passed in the Senate with a vote of 30-3. State officials said the one-week waiting period is a crucial part of the effort to root out fraud, but the bill works to eliminate it.
