Senate debates NC jobless insurance fix

Posted: Updated:

A controversial unemployment benefits bill is one step away from the governor's desk.

Tuesday afternoon, state senators tentatively approved a measure that would require higher taxes on businesses and force unemployed people to live on $350 a week.

That's a third less than the current maximum.

The full Senate will likely vote on this bill Wednesday.
