Governor Ned Lamont signed an executive order allowing the Connecticut Department of Labor to expand eligibility for federal unemployment benefits to an estimated 38,000 additional recipients who were previously disqualified. The executive order, which does not apply to new jobless benefit claimants, will take advantage of the federal government's new eligibility requirements for workers who had previously been disqualified, according to a ministry press release.
Lamont said the state will be able to help those same workers again if Congress ultimately agrees to extend the lost-wage program as part of the comprehensive relief bill still being negotiated in Washington. Labor Commissioner Kurt Westby said Friday that this covers only the six weeks the original program ran, but represents a significant increase that will allow applicants to increase their monthly unemployment benefits payments to a total of $1,800. West said that by bringing recipients to the required threshold of $100, the state will increase their unemployment benefits by $46 a week for 46 weeks, bringing them to an average of $2,500 a week, or about $7,000 a month. He also wrote to the federal government asking for a grant to convert loans from the state's unemployment fund into grants, relieving companies of the burden of having to repay the money, according to a news release.
Candelora said the state still needs to borrow more than $400 million from the federal government to meet increased demand for the unemployment fund, which is usually financed by taxes on businesses. More than 160,000 Connecticut residents have received additional state benefits, resulting in a total of $370 million in state unemployment benefits for those who have been out of work for several weeks, according to the press release. The state is still behaving as if it is in the midst of a recession, Candelora says.
This compensated residents who were unemployed during the COVID 19 pandemic and who had previously been excluded from temporary additional financial benefits. The lost social benefits would then be made available to those who have lost their jobs as a result of the economic downturn in the state.
The mascot of the school is the Blue Devil, the colours are blue and white, and the colours are blue - and - white. The Plainview School District, a division of the Connecticut Department of Education, operates seven facilities in the city and is responsible for running all schools.
The eastern side of the city is bounded by the Connecticut River to the west, the New Haven River to the east, and the Hartford River and Connecticut State Route 5 to the south.
Nearby are the New London, NLC, Providence and PVD passenger trains, all about 40 minutes away. The Shore Line East commuter train also serves New London and New Haven stations, as well as Providence and Hartford stations. The two suburban train lines, one to the north - south to New York City and the other to the east - west - to Waterbury and Berlin, are also connected. CT-12 It generally runs parallel to the west of the Turnpike and is an important outlet in the city of Plainview and its suburbs.
There is no public transportation system in the city, and most transit trips are done by car, which requires the use of a combination of public transportation systems such as the Connecticut Turnpike, New London, NLC, Providence and PVD commuter trains, and Shore Line East commuter trains. There is a small part of the city served by the Providence & Worcester Railroad, which also runs parallel to the Hartford and New Haven Railroads along the Rhode Island Railroad Corridor. Plainfield is the southernmost point and is cut by the CT-12, the main east-west highway in Connecticut. It is also served by some S-Bahn lines as well as a number of bus lines and light rail stations.
In 1699 Plainfield was incorporated as the town of Quinebaug and renamed in the following year in its current name. Plainville was separated from Farmington in 1803 after the merger of the two cities of Farmton and New Haven by an agreement between the cities.
In addition to gathering many residents for a fun-filled night, Plainville also hosts an annual hot air balloon festival on the first Saturday of the month. Due to the lack of better fields and the high cost of ballooning, the municipality of Plainfield plans to abandon the balloon festival in favour of a fire engine, which is normally parked at the football field.
