    PBS is doing special programming in my area since the schools are shut down and not all students have internet access.

    I'm so glad it passed! As I've posted before, in my neighborhood, the airport is (or should I say was?) the biggest employer - you can begin to imagine the scope of job loss in my corner of the world. Lots of my neighbors desperately need that $1,200 plus unemployment soon coming. Thank You DC for getting your act together long enough to put this together and get it signed! Color me grateful. Rob

    Rob, our unemployment went up 187%. We are the highest in the nation so I feel your pain.

    I just got laid off yesterday after 13.5 years at the same company, if you hadn't read that otherwise.

    The $1200 will be welcome, too!
    Is that right? Extra $600 across the board?

    About the $600, that's what I'm reading everywhere.
