Illinois Officials Call For Reinstating Unemployment Benefits

Illinoisans are encouraging Congress to restore federal unemployment benefits.  Jay Rowell with the Illinois Department of Economic Security says unemployed people have had a difficult finding work since the benefits expired last year.  Unemployment benefits were cut back in December, leaving about 74-thousand people in Illinois without benefits and struggling to find gainful employment.  That number is down to about 64-thousand.  The U.S. Senate voted to restore the benefits but the House hasn't followed suit.
