WASHINGTON — ‘Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will introduce new legislation Tuesday to restore long-term unemployment insurance for 2 million workers’.
‘According to an aide, the bill would reauthorize the compensation for six months retroactive to Dec. 28th, when the benefits lapsed for 1.3 million workers (more claimants have become eligible for federal benefits since then)’.
‘Reid’s plan is to use savings from the recently passed farm bill in order to offset the cost of the measure and win Republican support’.
