FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR: Senate Bill 2480

"I would like to thank Tommy Robertson and the entire Senate for unanimously passing Senate Bill 2480, which would reform the unemployment tax formula.

As I said in my State of the State address when I offered this proposal, this change is a win-win. We can give small businesses a tax break to help job creation and with a new formula, we can redirect $20 million to fund additional workforce training programs at our community colleges to help keep unemployment low."
