Senator Huntley Helps Protect Unemployed New Yorkers

Senate passes legislation to aid unemployed as tens of thousands face loss of benefits Today, State Senator Shirley Huntley announced that the New York State Senate passed critical legislation (S.4110-A) that will provide an additional 13 weeks of extended benefits to nearly 120,000 currently unemployed New Yorkers.   This legislation comes at a time when our economy is struggling, as Senator Huntley and her colleagues in the Majority are working to turn the economy around and help people find new, fair paying jobs.
