The House has just passed the Emergency Extended Unemployment Compensation Act, H.R. 5749. The legislation will immediately provide up to 13 weeks of extended unemployment benefits in every state to workers exhausting the 26 weeks of regular unemployment benefits, providing much-needed relief to 3.8 million unemployed workers to assist them with rapidly rising gas and food costs, while they continue to struggle to find work in the slowing economy. Rep. John Lewis spoke in favor.
