Unemployment Compensation Extension Passes Senate

Earlier this week, we asked for your help in talking to legislators about a bill to extend unemployment benefits. As we mentioned:
Currently, 5.4 million Americans have been out of a job for six months or more. Approximately 7,000 workers run out of unemployment insurance each day.
Yesterday, the Senate unanimously passed a bill to extend unemployment benefits as well as the first-time home buyers tax credit, which was set to expire at the end of November, along with a tax credit for some current homeowners and a change in businesses' ability to deduct losses. The bill will now go back to the House, where it is expected to be passed as early as today.

Please take a moment to thank legislators for passing this bill, and thank you for all your work!
