Atlanta (WAOK) Several thousand Georgians may lose their extended unemployment benefits in the next couple of months. The problem?  The state law needs to be changed to make it more in line with federal eligibility rules. State legislators however have taken their spring break and won’t be back at work until April 11. When they get back they will only have a few days before the end of the current General Assembly session. State Senator Nan Orock says its important to get these changes passed.

The state labor department says an estimated $175 million from the federal government is at stake for extended unemployment benefits in Georgia.
