Vote Description

Unemployment Benefits Extension. HR 5618 (Roll Call 423)



The House passed legislation not only extending unemployment benefits once again, but making the extension retroactive and providing for 100 percent federal funding for these extended benefits. There was no corresponding reduction in spending, thus the deficit was increased by $34 billion. ACU opposes this type of “emergency” spending, but the bill passed July 1, 2010 by a vote of 270-153.
