Senator Snowe Provides the 60th Vote To Extend Unemployment Benefits Another Month

Along with three other Republican senators, Senator Olympia Snowe provided the 60th vote necessary to move  forward the bill that would extend unemployment benefits for another month (well, actually, only two weeks, now.)  The bill is expected to pass later this week.

This means that if you’re unemployed and in transition between one of the four tiers of available extended federal benefits, you’ll be able to do so for the next two weeks. The bill will also apply retroactively, so that anyone who missed benefits due to the delay will be able to collect them.

A bill that would extend the deadlines to file for extended benefits through the end of 2010 is also in the works. So far, no new tiers of benefits have been created.
