President Donald Trump signs the COVID Relief bill and Omnibus spending bill, but the delay has created chaos

After almost a week of delays, and allowing the December 26, 2020 unemployment deadline to pass, President Donald Trump signed the COVID Relief and Omnibus Spending bill on Sunday evening. The delay in signing pushed over 12 million Americans over an unemployment cliff and has caused chaos for employment security.

In Washington state, Governor Jay Inslee and Employment Security is providing a one-time payment of $550 for PUA recipients as a bridge to coming federal assistance.
