Compiler's Notes: Enacting section 1 of Act 267 of 2011 provides:"Enacting section 1. The legislature finds and declares all of the following: (a) It is an essential governmental function to maintain funds in an amount sufficient to pay unemployment benefits when due. (b) At the time of the enactment of this act, unemployment benefits payments are made from Michigan's account in the unemployment trust fund of the United States treasury and are funded by employer contributions. (c) At the time of the enactment of this act, borrowing from the federal government through loans from the federal unemployment trust fund is the only option available to obtain sufficient funds to pay benefits when the balance in Michigan's account in the unemployment trust fund of the United States treasury is insufficient to make necessary payments. (d) Alternative methods of replenishing this state's account in the unemployment trust fund of the United States treasury may reduce the costs of providing unemployment benefits and employers' cost of doing business in the state. (e) It is in this state's best interests to authorize the issuance of bonds when appropriate for the purpose of continuing the unemployment insurance program at the lowest possible cost to this state and employers in this state and to avoid reductions in the employer unemployment tax credit.
