Federal coronavirus relief legislation enacted in March authorized jobless Americans to receive an extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits. Those payments are scheduled to end after July 31.
Reform measures are being looked at in order to incentivize people to go back to work, or at least not to provide a disincentive to find work or return to a job.
Ideas for the reform package are being considered by lawmakers. A cash bonus encouraging people to rejoin the workforce, is one notion. A reduction to the current benefits while allowing people to return to work (in essence double-dipping for a period of time) is another. Gradually reducing the aid by tying it to economic metrics like the state unemployment rate is a third.
Lawmakers will likely compromise and extend enhanced unemployment benefits in some form after July.
States are beginning to reopen their economies and many businesses that received Paycheck Protection Program loans have rehired workers to fulfill a condition of getting that federal aid.
