Leno bill aims to extend unemployment benefits 

More employees would be able to work part time and still receive partial unemployment insurance benefits under a bill authored by state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco.

The measure before the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee on Wednesday also would require greater promotion of the “work share” program.

A similar effort in New York reduced the number of employees needing full jobless benefits. The bill is part of Senate Democrats’ 27-bill job-creation package.
