Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is chairing the Finance Committee hearing that will feature IWD director Beth Townsend. Grassley says the committee is going to focus on the problem that developed as a result of payouts from the CARES Act exceeding what many workers would get for a paycheck. Grassley says the Congress set up $600 dollars in additional unemployment insurance above whatever the 50 states would pay in their respective states.
Grassley says there are ideas circulating about how to remedy this problem, but no solutions are nailed down as yet.
