Statement from Rep. Owens on Today's Extension of Unemployment Insurance

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bill Owens issued the following statement today upon House passage of an extension of emergency unemployment benefits. Approval by the House of Representatives sends the temporary extension to the President to be signed into law.

"After weeks of needless delay, I am pleased to see the extension of these sorely needed benefits for Upstate New York's unemployed. While out of work New Yorkers face the stress of finding a job in a tough economy, relieving this worry hopefully makes the process a little easier," said Owens. "I hope in the future, partisan politics won't stand in the way of doing what is right for our working families struggling to make ends meet."
