On Saturday morning, the Senate passed the American Rescue Plan Act, and it included another expansion of unemployment benefits.
It was initially slated to be $400 per week until the end of August, but the bill that passed in the Senate contained a whittled-down benefit of $300 per week and will be paid from March 15 to Sept. 6. While the stimulus bill isn’t yet law, Democrats hope to have it on Biden’s desk before March 14 when the current expanded unemployment benefits run out.
