The state’s unemployment rate dropped to 5.8% in March, down from 7.8%, the lowest rate in Kentucky in nearly two years.

Kentucky’s unemployment rates for women and minorities have also been trending downward since early this year.

In February, women were at 3.6% and minorities at 2.5%.

Kentuckians are also having trouble finding affordable health insurance through their state’s Medicaid expansion, according to a report released by the Kentucky Insurance Commission on Thursday.

Kentuckian health insurance market is booming, but it has been hard for many people to afford coverage.

The state has a new Medicaid expansion program that began in 2018 and was supposed to cover nearly a million Kentuckians by 2020, but the numbers have been inconsistent.

The new enrollment rate for 2017 was about 9% of the population, but in February it was down to 6%.

In February of 2018, the number was 8%.

For the past two years, the unemployment rate has been trending upward.

Kentucks jobless rate was 6.2% in August of 2017.

Since then, the rate has declined by 0.4 percentage points, according the Bureau of Employment and Labor Statistics, which also reported that the unemployment rates of those with college degrees and recent graduates have declined as well.

In 2018, Kentuckans’ monthly average weekly income increased by $1,839, according a report from the Kentucky Employment Development Corporation.

The increase was $3,739 in September and $2,898 in October.

Kentucky unemployment insurance coverage could be cut after new state budget

A new state-run unemployment insurance program that covers more than 20 million people in Kentucky could be slashed as a result of a Republican-controlled Legislature.

Gov.

Matt Bevin said Monday that a bill that he signed last week to help the state pay for unemployment insurance will be amended to reduce eligibility by 30,000 people, including those who earn less than $25,000 a year.

Bevin said the reduction is in response to “federal budget constraints.”

The governor said the unemployment insurance cut was “part of a broader budget package that includes a number of steps designed to help Kentucky meet the challenges we face.”

He said the state is now at a “high-water mark” in terms of job growth and unemployment, which is in part due to a recent recession.

“We are in the midst of a record number of people looking for work, and I have seen our economy grow by about 50 percent since this budget was enacted,” Bevin told reporters.

“So, we’re at a high-water point.”

He added that he expects unemployment to drop to 5.6 percent by the end of the year.

The budget cut comes after a series of GOP budget bills were passed in the past year, including one that reduced funding for the state’s unemployment insurance and unemployment insurance programs.

Bevin signed the budget bill last week.

The Senate approved the budget package, but it’s not yet law in the House.

The House is expected to vote on the legislation this week.
