The measure passed the House unanimously today, although a few Republicans expressed concerns over the bill. The bill would let the state borrow money to help make federal interest payments on a loan Kentucky took out during the recession. The state borrowed more than $900 billion to help pay for unemployment insurance, but didn&rsquo;t account for interest payments. If the state is late on payments, the federal government can put a higher tax on employers to recoup the funds.
