Existing law authorizes the Director of Employment Development to apply for an advance to the Unemployment Fund and accept the responsibility for the repayment of the advance in accordance with the conditions specified in Title XII of the Social Security Act, as amended, to secure the advantages available under the provisions of that title. Existing law authorizes the federal government to make advances to the states from the federal unemployment account in the federal Unemployment Trust Fund and requires repayment of those advances, with interest, as specified. Existing law authorizes the governor of any state to request that funds be transferred from a state account to the federal unemployment account in repayment of part or all of the balance of advances, as specified. This bill would appropriate $19,300,000,000 from the General Fund to the Employment Development Department for the purpose of repaying all advances from the federal unemployment account, as specified.
