The bill, Senate Bill 2, was sponsored by Senator Roy Blake of Nacogdoches, who commented, "I am glad to get this bill passed in the Senate because it is long overdue, and if it is passed by the House, it will guarantee that the Unem- ployment Act is administered within the framework of legislative intent." Blake's bill will deny benefits to per- sons who quit their jobs voluntarily or who are discharged for misconduct un- til they have returned to work and worked for six weeks. Under existing law, claimants in these categories could be denied benefits as many as twenty-six weeks. Public employers must pay dollar for dollar the benefits awarded their ex- WEEKLY employees.
