Sen. Jansen to help residents with state unemployment claims
LANSING - Sen. Mark C. Jansen announced today that constituents can visit his Web site or call his office if they are having difficulty reaching the state unemployment agency.
“At a time when people across the state need help from the unemployment office the most, instead they are finding roadblocks and hurdles in their way,” said Jansen, R-Gaines Township. “As chair of the appropriations subcommittee that determines funding for the department overseeing the unemployment agency, I plan to find out why they were so ill-prepared.”
Jansen will soon convene a hearing to determine why the Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth was not ready for the increase in unemployment claims.
For help, residents should go to www.senatormarkjansen.com to enter their contact and unemployment information, which will be submitted to the unemployment office through a legislative channel.
Jansen represents the Kent County communities of Ada Township, Algoma Township, Alpine Township, Bowne Township, Byron Township, Caledonia Township, Cannon Township, Cedar Springs, Courtland Township, East Grand Rapids, Gaines Township, Grand Rapids Township, Nelson Township, Oakfield Township, Plainfield Township, Rockford, Solon Township, Spencer Township, Tyrone Township, Walker and Wyoming.
Constituents of the 28th Senate District can also contact Jansen’s office at 1-866-305-2128 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I encourage residents of the 28th Senate District to contact my office if they are having problems getting through to the unemployment office. We will do everything we can to help them with the process,” Jansen said.
