A group of Democratic lawmakers is calling on President Joe Biden to incorporate wider-reaching and permanent unemployment measures in the next economic package he’s set to unveil next week.

In a letter sent on Friday, the lawmakers called on Biden to increase both the amount of unemployment benefits and their duration as part of his latest infrastructure plan. They note that many states slashed jobless aid in the wake of the Great Recession, and they want to set a federal standard for benefits.
