The director of Colorado's unemployment department says the system is broken and many people are having trouble getting their checks.
Colorado Department of Labor director Ellen Golombeck says the computer system the state uses is more than 20 years old and it's inefficient.
Golombeck says the state has approved a $72 million system paid with a federal grant that will replace the old system, but it will take four years.
Colorado plans to share the new system with Wyoming, North Dakota and Arizona.
