State seeks to speed unemployment benefits

Posted: Wednesday, July 28, 2010

JUNEAU - The state labor department says it's trying to speed unemployment benefits for those who've filed since June 2, when federal funding expired.

It hopes to have those payments out within a week.

President Barack Obama last week signed an extension of unemployment benefits that had lapsed amid a stalemate in Congress.
