  1. Retroactivity is “a go,” he said, and we should expect to see a rule this week on it. Sec. Satter tells me they have not yet chosen an effective date for that retroactivity. Importantly (and disappointingly), the retroactivity they are willing to do is not retroactivity to the date of job loss. Instead it is a retroactivity on the date of application, intended to hold applicants harmless to when they tried to apply but could not because of system inoperability (allowing people to self-report the date they first tried to apply is, to me, the only workable way to do this and he did not disagree).
