Posted on 03/13/2014 7:15:21 PM PDT by mrsmith
From the letter from the Senators: "...The proposal is fully paid-for using a combination of offsets that includes extending pension smoothing provisions from the 2012 highway bill (MAP-21), which were set to phase out this year, and extending customs user fees through 2024. The bill also includes an additional offset allowing single-employer pension plans to prepay their flat rate premiums to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC)... ends unemployment insurance payments to any individual whose adjusted gross income in the preceding year was $1 million or more... proposal also includes language championed by Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) to strengthen reemployment and eligibility assessment (REA) and ReEmployment Services (RES) programs. In an effort to help get job seekers back into the workforce, individuals receiving emergency unemployment compensation will be eligible for enhanced, personalized assessments and referrals to reemployment services when they begin their 27th week of UI (Tier I) and 55th week of UI (Tier III)."

Is it ‘fully paid for’? I have no idea what the pension stuff is about.
Would a $100,000 AGI be a good cut-off for federal- not state- extended UI benefits? A million sounds awful high.
