Malloy urges unemployment insurance extension (release)

Governor Dannel P. Malloy today sent a letter to Congressional leadership, urging the extension of federal unemployment insurance programs for unemployed workers, which are set to expire on Dec. 31.

"If Congress does not extend these benefits, 58,000 citizens of Connecticut will have exhausted their benefits, approximately eleven-thousand citizens will prematurely lose their benefits in 2012, and an additional ninety-thousand citizens will have their benefit weeks reduced," wrote Gov. Malloy. "For our citizens and our economy, I urge you to extend the federal unemployment insurance programs before they expire on Dec. 31."
