Governor Herbert, 

As one of the thousands of Utahns who have been forced to seek government assistance as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, I urge you to call a special session of the legislature, with the intent to waive the one-week waiting period for unemployment benefits.  Working-class Utahns have seen their jobs, wages, dreams, and careers simply vanish due to no fault of their own and deserve swift and decisive action from our state officials in mitigating the problem.  Let's not import the worst of Washington's confusion, bickering, and inaction to our great state.  Instead, let's show America and the world that Utah will take bold actions to support it's citizens in this time of crisis.
