Vote to pass a bill that increases taxes on employers for unemployment benefits during calendar years 2011 and 2012.

Highlights:

    • Monies shall first be used to pay interest charges incurred on the loan; and
    • Monies shall then be used to retire the loan principal no later than November 10, 2012.
  • Authorizes the Department of Economic Security to increase the assessment for 2012 from the assessment for 2011 if the fund monies are calculated to be insufficient to pay the interest charges and retire the principal no later than November 10, 2012 (Sec. 2).
