The PUA and FPUC programs only cover unemployment that occurs in 2020. And unless Congress passes the next coronavirus aid package currently under negotiation, the PUA program will expire at the end of this month. So, I joined my colleagues Reps. Davis (D-IL) and Kildee (D-MI) in a letter to the President urging support for an extension of the PUA program before its expiration. The current aid package proposes an extension of PUA and FPUC benefits, providing $645 per week to eligible Marianas workers for 16 weeks from January into April 2021.
