$600 unemployment benefits expire as both sides of the Senate are unable to reach a deal

5 Live

The federal program that provides unemployed Americans an extra $600 per week expires on Friday.

Senate Republicans and Democrats have been unable to reach a deal on the next round of stimulus for Americans hurting financially due to the pandemic. Many people are also at risk of finding themselves without a place to live. A federal eviction moratorium on millions of renters expired last week. It’s unclear if the Senate or the House will reinstate that moratorium as part of stimulus talks.
