Has congress pass the extension for unemployment

No, the Senate officially passed legislation to extend unemployment insurance benefits on April 7, 2014. But in order to be approved, it would also need to pass the House.

Right now there is no news of a vote being scheduled on legislation to renew federal jobless benefits.

According to The Inquisitr, the unemployment extension in 2014 appeared less and less likely this week as an attempt by a lone Republican senator to tie the unemployment benefits extension to a massive corporate tax cut bill fizzled out on Capitol Hill. Find out more here.
