PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Governor Doug Ducey announced Monday an executive order that would require unemployed Arizonans to prove that they are actively looking for a job to continue receiving unemployment benefits.
This would get rid of Gov. Ducey's March 2020 executive order that waived the previous requirement to help those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic so that they could receive unemployment benefits more efficiently.
"A year out from the start of the pandemic, jobs, and vaccines are readily available," said Governor Ducey. "Arizonans are ready to get back to work. Our economy is booming, jobs need filling, more than 2 million Arizonans are fully vaccinated, and vaccination appointments are available to anyone who wants one."
