Democratic Rep. Avon Honey quietly slipped the language to sidestep Jindal's refusal of the stimulus dollars into another unemployment bill on the House floor Monday evening. There was no discussion about what the changes did.
The House then quickly approved the bill, which initially hadn't been controversial, and sent it to the Senate for debate.
Jindal's labor secretary, Tim Barfield, released a statement saying the move was "disappointing." Jindal has opposed taking the dollars because he says the acceptance of those funds would force businesses to pay higher unemployment taxes.
