Senate to Vote on Unemployment Benefits Extension Next Monday

The state Senate is scheduled to vote on extension of unemployment benefits Monday, August 1, 2011.  Senate Bill 147 provides an additional 13 weeks of unemployment insurance benefits to Wisconsin residents. 

The Assembly removed language from the bill that would have cost up to $56 million, and left intact language needed to trigger $88 million in federal funding for extended unemployment benefits.

The bill is expected to be approved by the Senate.
