How nice for her! Still no budget plan to speak of... and the state's seemingly-endless sea of red ink has increased by another $165,000 (with absolutely no benefit to the taxpayers). Ms. Arduin had one job (which she was rather handsomely paid to do, at taxpayer expense)... and now she's skipping out on it, before anything of value gets accomplished?? That sure sounds like the definition…

Ms. White's "conversational approach" towards tackling topical issues (with some humor thrown in) sounds like it will be a terrific addition to the Journal's new site. (After all, not everybody wants to read pieces that have been written in the stuffy/self-important style of the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal. I actually prefer to read columnists who don't take themselves…

Mo. Lawmakers pass bill limiting jobless benefits

1 year, 3 months ago businessweek.com

Amount of time to claim benefits would depend on how many were looking for work

From businessweek.com:

The amount of time Missouri workers could claim unemployment benefits after losing a job would depend upon how many others also are looking for work, according to a measure given final legislative approval Wednesday.

Missouri residents currently can collect unemployment benefits for up to 20 weeks. Under the legislation, jobless benefits could be claimed for 20 weeks only when the state's average unemployment rate is at least 9 percent. The maximum duration of jobless benefits would decrease one week for each one-half percentage point drop in the unemployment rate, and bottom out at 13 weeks when the state's jobless rate is less than 6 percent.

The bill could make Missouri's jobless benefits timespan one of the shortest in the nation. Florida and North Carolina both have linked the duration of jobless benefits to the unemployment rate with the potential for their payments to halt after 12 weeks.

Missouri Rep. Jay Barnes said the measure brings more rationality to Missouri's unemployment system.
