Date: July 12, 1482 Re: Unemployment Tax Rate • 7(/ Austin, Texas 78711 Phone (512) 475-0510 A lot has been said about the report on the unemployment tax rate made by Lloyd Criss. As pointed out by Lee Jackson, this is an indellendent report hv Crisp and not a report by the Committee. We never got a copy of it. The attached copy was sent to me by Lee Jackson. It is Jackson's opinion that the author, Greg Enos, worked at the Texas Employment Commission. amos•somb The TEC's consideration of recommendations are on pages 12 and 13. Lloyd Criss did not like Senate Bill 2 that was passed by Sen. Blake and which we signed. The report is slanted towards the repeal of SB 2. This is why Lee Jackson says a lot of their recommendations would not be acceptable to his Committee. However, the liavislation they feel is necessary to prevent the unemployment insurance tax increase they are talking about. JJK/csf VU444"..
