The House passed S.C.R. 9 unanimously on Tuesday to suspend the state law that places a solvency tax on employers when the state's unemployment trust fund falls below $100 million. The Senate passed the resolution unanimously on Oct. 13.
The suspension takes immediate effect and will continue until 60 days after final adjournment of the 2021 regular session of the Legislature.
Gov. John Bel Edwards issued an executive order in September that temporarily suspended the tax due to the pandemic.
