Blacks, Latinos most affected by unemployment benefit cuts, says report

Blacks, Latinos most affected by unemployment benefit cuts, says report

According to a new report, the reduction to unemployment benefits being negotiated this week in the Florida legislature will have a greater impact on black and Latino workers than on their white counterparts. # A Florida International University Research Institute on Social and Economic Policy report (pdf.) issued Wednesday states: # The disparity in unemployment rates shows that communities of color in Florida have been the hardest hit by the recession in Florida and will therefore likely take much longer to recover. This is an important consideration for state policy makers who are proposing changes to Florida’s unemployment compensation system.

Republicans tout, progressives rebuke newly proposed Iowa regulatory reforms

Republicans in the Iowa House and Senate and the Branstad administration have rolled out a set of nine initiatives related to regulatory reform that they say will expedite business and business expansion in the state, but progressives who attended a series of meetings the GOP lauded as precursors to the proposals are calling foul. According to a GOP press release, “these initial reforms came about as a result of their highly successful and very well attended 11 city tour this spring.” The release notes that more than 1,000 Iowans attended, nearly 175 testified and approximately 300 public comment forms were collected. Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, a statewide progressive group that calls on government and corporations to put people first, believes that the Republican proposal is ignoring the testimony of more than 175 of the organization’s members who attended public hearings across the state, calling for “stronger and more effective public oversight over factory farm polluters and other big-moneyed corporations.” The nine initiatives, which the GOP has pledged to champion in the 2012 General Assembly, are: All state departments and agencies have a searchable and user-friendly rules database on their websites
