Some states still are not paying "federal supplement"

 Even thought President Trump signed executive orders 2 weeks ago states like Connecticut are not adding "federal supplement" to the unemployment benefits.

Earlier this morning the message on the official state portal for Connecticut said: "$600 weekly supplemental expired on July 25, 2020. Connecticut is prohibited by law from continuing this program without federal re-authorization."

Later a new message was added: "Connecticut, along with other states and districts, is waiting for guidance from the U.S. Dept. of Labor regarding the federal supplement."

Why are they surprised when people accuse their "feet drugging" politically motivated?
