Coons applauds benefits extension but says more needs to be done
Senator Chris Coons commends Congress for approving a 2 month extension of emergency federal benefits but he says he would have preferred a one year extension.
Saturday's vote in DC extends a tax cut for the middle class and emergency federal unemployment benefits for the more than 7,000 Delawareans still looking for work for 2 more months.
Coons says Congress has a responsibility to not only pass legislation that helps grow the economy but also to support those struggling for work.
He adds he is proud of the Senate for doing the right thing.
