Amends title XII (Advances to State Unemployment Funds) of the Social Security Act to provide that interest shall not accrue on any advance made to a State during a specified period during which the rate of insured unemployment is equal to or greater than five percent.
Provides that no repayment of any advance or of any interest on an advance shall be required during the same period.
Amends the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970 to include claims for regular, extended, and sharable regular compensation in the calculation of the "insured unemployment rate" (current law includes only claims for regular compensation).

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
