   amount  of  remuneration  to  be  included  as "wages" for purposes of      
   specified provisions of the Act in 2000 and 2004. Makes changes in the      
   amount of the statewide average weekly wage in 2000 and 2004. Replaces      
   certain provisions concerning  the  use  of  moneys  credited  to  the      
   account of this State in the Unemployment Trust Fund under Section 903      
   of  the  Social Security Act with provisions allowing the use of those      
   moneys as authorized by Section 903.  Provides that, upon request, the      
   Department of Employment Security may give a person  (or  his  or  her      
   agent)  a statement of benefits paid to the person during the 18-month      
   period preceding  the  request.  Provides  that,  in  the  case  of  a      
   classification sanctioned by the United States Department of Labor and

   employing unit file reports giving notice of the transfer  within  120      
   days of the transfer. Some provisions are effective immediately.
