House Passes Unemployment Compensation Legislation

The House unanimously passed a bill that would extend unemployment compensation to those who have exhausted or are about to exhaust their unemployment benefits.

If the bill is passed by the Senate, it will extend benefits for another 20 weeks. The bill will not add additional benefits. The extension is funded by federal stimulus money and is not expected to cost the state anything. Final vote was 102 to 0.
