Federal UI Extension Votes and Impact on the States

Source: National Employment Law Project, July 2010

From the press release:
New analysis released today by the National Employment Law Project lists every U.S. Senator and Representative who voted against extending unemployment benefits last month and the cost of that opposition to their states – both in terms of the thousands of unemployed workers who continue to be cut off benefits every week, and the millions in economic stimulus that each state is missing out on as a result of the lapsed programs….Yet another poll finds overwhelming support for extension of unemployment benefits to help the unemployed, despite deficit concerns.
