The article reports on a statement issued by Paul Havas, chairman of Nevada's Employment Security Council, regarding the solvency of the state's Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, even with statewide unemployment rising. According to Havas, the state has paid out 50 percent more in benefits as of August 11, 2008, compared to the same time period in 2007. Havas explained that he made the statement because of problems some states are having keeping up with rising unemployment rates.
