"Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds announced that all federal pandemic unemployment programs will soon end in their respective states.

“Federal pandemic-related unemployment benefit programs initially provided displaced Iowans with crucial assistance when the pandemic began,” Reynolds said. “But now that our businesses and schools have reopened, these payments are discouraging people from returning to work. Our unemployment rate is at 3.7 percent, vaccines are available to anyone who wants one, and we have more jobs available than unemployed people.”"
