The governor sent a letter to congressional leaders late last week urging them to extend benefits for those who have been unable to find work. "These workers will suffer irreparable harm if these federal benefits are allowed to expire," Brown wrote, noting that more than 214,000 Californians could see their benefits expire.
Brown also noted the "severe federal underfunding" of the state's unemployment insurance program, which the governor blamed for delays in workers receiving their unemployment checks.
This year, we should change both the Enterprise Zone Program and the Jobs Hiring Credit. They aren't working. We also need to streamline our regulatory procedures, particularly the California Environmental Quality Ac, based more on consistent standards.
