St. Cloud Senator’s Bill Would Maintain Longer Jobless Benefits
The Minnesota Legislature has passed a bill that would maintain access to longer unemployment benefits for the state's jobless. The bill cleared the Senate unanimously Monday after passing the House last month. It now heads to Gov. Mark Dayton's desk. The legislation makes a technical adjustment to state law to allow unemployed Minnesotans to continue collecting unemployment benefits for up to 86 weeks.
