Congress is poised to let the unemployment insurance benefit clock once again run out for America’s jobless. The temporary 30-day extension put in place a few weeks ago is scheduled to end at the end of this month. However, members will be breaking for Easter recess Friday – which means millions will lose their unemployment benefits if lawmakers fail to act before the break.
Legislation to do away with the 30-day extensions and extend unemployment insurance benefits through the end of 2010 is currently under debate in the House. It’s imperative House lawmakers pass this bill and get it to the president’s desk this week.
