MSN to governor: Use money to extend unemployment, lift cap on All RISE, pay essential workers


Congressman Michael San Nicolas Tuesday said he’s helping the governor to secure $345 million in federal funding to make a down payment on a new hospital so that she can use the other $600 million he secured for her on other priorities. Specifically, he said he wants the governor to provide a formula-laden unemployment assistance program so that tens of thousands of families don’t fall into further despair after PUA expires this week. He also wants the governor to provide pay benefits for essential workers, and to lift the cap on the All RISE program. Watch his pointed remarks here.
