The Revenue Laws Study Committee approved a propsal to cut the current jobless benefits. 

Now the approved changes will be considered by a group of House and Senate lawmakers in North Carolina.

The changes proposed are:  to drop the maximum  weekly benefit from $535 to $350 and to replace the 26 weeks of benefits with a cap of 13 – 20 weeks based on the NC economy.

The cuts would affect those who apply for unemployment benefits beginning in July, and would help NC repay the $2.4 billion it owes  federal  government.
