Showdown Set On Unemployment Bill In Senate

Jan 7, 2014 7:35 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Democrats are trying to gather up enough votes to pass a White House-backed bill that would renew unemployment benefits that lapsed last month for the long-term jobless.

Supporters need 60 votes to advance the legislation, so they need to get five Republicans on board.

A test vote is expected today.
