Earlier this month the U.S. Senate failed to extend unemployment insurance (UI) for the nearly two million long-term unemployed Americans by a single vote. In Illinois, advocates are once again targeting Senator Mark Kirk as he was one of many Senators who voted against the expansion. Many also believe that he is the Senator most likely to switch his vote and support UI extension. Call Senator Kirk now at (202) 224-2854 and urge him to support UI extension.
