Forty-five people in Nacogdoches County will be affected by last week’s announcement by the Texas Workforce Commission that Texas is no longer eligible for federally funded extended benefits.

Due to the state’s improving unemployment rate, the additional 13 weeks of extended benefits in unemployment insurance benefits will no longer be paid as of May 12, according to a press release from the TWC. Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for March was 7 percent.
