GOP governors who cut pandemic unemployment aid have businesses that benefit

Of course, Republican governors without any apparent relevant business interests have also ended federal unemployment benefits early. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey’s most recent financial disclosure lists no businesses with which she is affiliated, and her outside income comes from bank interest, retirement benefits, Social Security, dividends and capital gains from investments in a blind trust, and timber and hunting leases. Ivey announced on May 10 that federal pandemic unemployment benefits for Alabamians would end on June 19. Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, who announced the end of federal pandemic unemployment benefits on May 11, lists income from his state salary, the publisher of his book and a blind trust.
