Abstract/Citation: Provides that upon exhausting the standard 26 weeks of unemployment insurance benefits, an unemployed person will be entitled to extended benefits for an additional 4 to 20 weeks, depending on the unemployment rate in his State. However, no such benefits will be available until the President determines that an emergency exists, and upon signing the Act.
