Notice of a Change in Status of the Extended Benefit (EB) Program 
for New Mexico

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor's (DOL) Employment and Training 
Administration (ETA) published in the Federal Register on April 27, 
2021, concerning New Mexico's EB change. On March 17, 2021, New Mexico 
Senate Bill 52 was enacted authorizing the use of the optional TUR 
trigger to determine New Mexico's EB status, and based on data released 
on March 15, 2021 by BLS, the seasonally-adjusted 3-month average total 
unemployment rate (TUR) for New Mexico rose above the 8.0 percent 
threshold necessary to trigger ``on'' to a High Unemployment Period for 
EB. However, in New Mexico, with the exception of general appropriation 
legislation, laws go into effect 90 days after date of enactment. This 
delay was not originally considered, and the original Federal Register 
Notice published on April 27, 2021 (86 FR 22268) contained an incorrect 
status change for New Mexico. Therefore, DOL is issuing this 
correction.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: U.S. Department of Labor, Employment 
and Training Administration, Office of Unemployment Insurance Room S-
4524, Attn: Thomas Stengle, 200 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Correction

    The New Mexico State Constiution stipulates that unless otherwise 
specified, legislation becomes effective 90 days after date of 
enactment. As such, New Mexico Senate Bill 52 authorizing the use of 
the optional TUR trigger to determine New Mexico's EB status does not 
become effective until June 18, 2021. Therefore, New Mexico's EB status 
preceding June 18, 2021 should not have considered the optional TUR 
trigger and New Mexico's EB status is corrected to reflect that due to 
the insured unemployment rate in the state droping below 5.0 percent 
for the week ending March 13, 2021, New Mexico triggered ``off'' EB 
effective April 3, 2021.
