Senate OKs Jobless Benefits Renewal, Tell the House to Do the Same

April 8, 2014

More than three months after House Republican leaders allowed the Emergency Unemployment Compensation benefits program to expire, nearly 2.8 million jobless workers have lost their economic lifeline. Monday, the U.S. Senate gave those workers a ray of hope when it passed (59-38) a bill reviving the program for long-term jobless workers. Now it is up to the House to keep that hope alive.

Call your House members today at 845-809-4509 and urge them to pass the emergency unemployment benefits extension now.
