The following information was shared by Maryland State Delegate Eric Ebersole on May 9th:

The Maryland General Assembly is taking the additional step of holding a virtual public hearing on the unemployment insurance issues facing the public. Here is more information that was released yesterday:

“SENATE COMMITTEES TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARING ON UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE ISSUES

Annapolis, MD – The Senate Finance Committee, and the Senate Budget & Taxation Committee will hold a joint hearing so the public can share their experiences and difficulties applying for unemployment insurance. While the Administration has claimed that all issues have been addressed, constituent calls and media reports show thousands of Marylanders with the inability to receive the benefits they are entitled to so they can put food on the table. This hearing will provide the public an opportunity to ensure that the Administration and Department of Labor are aware of the scope of the problem Marylanders are facing.

WHEN: 1pm, Tuesday, May 12, 2020
