From the Summary: "Responding to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and the resulting economic recession, Congressional interest remains high in how to support workers and provide weekly income replacement for individuals who are unavailable to work or unemployed as a result of the pandemic. The 116th Congress has created several new temporary unemployment insurance (UI) benefits for workers unemployed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as temporarily modified permanent UI programs. Congress continues to consider additional modifications to both permanent law UI programs and the temporary new programs."
