We need our members to contact their legislators in Jefferson City about the negative impact of
reducing Unemployment Benefits to 13 weeks. (HB1409)
You can call, email, write a letter, or make an office visit to express your concern of this bill.
This bill will be on the House floor as early as Monday, January 29, 2018 and then off to the senate.
