LAO: Delay Action on Brown’s Plan for Unemployment Fund
A new Legislative Analyst's Office report urges lawmakers to hold off on acting on Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) proposal to change the state's Unemployment Insurance Fund until "a long-term solvency plan" is drafted. Brown's plan would continue borrowing money from the Disability Insurance Fund, raise payroll taxes on employers and tighten eligibility for unemployment benefits.
