Braley: Congress Must Act On Unemployment Insurance

bruce braleyWashington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement today after the United States Senate’s successful passage of an emergency extension of unemployment benefits, restoring benefits that expired at the end of December. [Note from BFIA: Senator Grassley voted against]

“Thirty-five thousand Iowans desperately looking for work have lost the lifeline that unemployment insurance represents—and I’ve heard from families across the state that are now struggling to survive as a result of those cuts. These are people who have fought to find work in the middle of a tough economic environment and I urge the House to act quickly to extend this help.”
