Budget to reform unemployment benefits
by UPI

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration said the U.S. Labor Department's 2010 budget would seek to fundamentally reform the nation's unemployment insurance system.

Building on modernization reforms included in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, the proposed budget will focus on making the benefits program more accessible to unemployed workers and ensuring its integrity, the administration said in the budget document.

President Barack Obama turned over his budget proposal for fiscal year 2010 to Congress Thursday.

The Labor Department's proposed allocation also would strengthen enforcement of labor standards, including workplace safety and benefit security.

It also would establish automatic workplace pensions when appropriate.
