Legislative leaders from both chambers co-signed a bipartisan letter that lays out detailed requests for unemployment insurance provisions and funding that should be included in further COVID-19 relief legislation that is badly needed before the end of the calendar year. The requested items will help ensure claimants continue to receive pandemic unemployment insurance benefits during this third wave of the disease, support Washington businesses, and enhance the integrity and function of the unemployment insurance system amid ongoing high demand.
