Saturday, Maryland lost many court battles trying to end uneomplyment programs. Due to the losses, Maryland will continue to pay residents unemployment benefits including the $300 federal supplement.
“Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, announced last month that he was terminating the three pandemic benefits measures on July 3 in order to spur more people to return to the workforce. But unemployed residents, who filed two lawsuits seeking to stop Hogan’s move, won a short-term reprieve when a state judge on Saturday issued a temporary restraining order and state’s chief judge on Monday denied the governor’s appeal.”
According to a lawyer for the jobless, there are 300,000 residents in Maryland that are on at least one unemployment program.
