Granholm to seek extended benefits for unemployed workers

Jan. 26, 2008 (AP): Gov. Jennifer Granholm plans to visit Washington on Thursday to lobby for extended benefits for unemployed workers.

She also plans to tell a U.S. Senate committee that more money is needed by states for health care.

The Senate is considering adding an extension of jobless benefits to the $150 billion economic stimulus package of rebates and business tax cuts in a deal wrapped up Thursday between House leaders and President George W. Bush.

Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd tells The Detroit News the governor is scheduled to testify before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. The committee is considering the package.

Bush has urged Congress to quickly pass the package without any further spending.
