Unemployment bill dealing with fraud fails in House

A bill requiring the reporting of hiring or rehiring employees failed the House, after it had already passed, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Assistant Minorty Leader, Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, originally voted for the bill, which passed 36-34. However, nearly 30 minutes later, Bedke changed his vote to no, which caused the bill to fail as currently written.

The bill charges companies $25 per worker that is not reported, and Bedke felt that was unnecessary. Earlier in the session the bill passed the Senate 34-0.
