Denver (AP) A Colorado Springs lawmaker wants to change state law and allow spouses of members in the military to collect unemployment insurance when they are forced to relocate.
Representative Amy Stephens of Monument says those spouses and their employers are forced to pay for unemployment insurance, but can't collect it if they are transferred.
She said in the military, rejecting a transfer because of financial hardship isn't an option. And it is unfair to limit benefits to spouses.
