Oregon lawmakers approved an extension of unemployment benefits back in March, but more people are applying than expected. Craig Spivey with the Oregon Employment Department says the $30 million in benefits will probably run out in a couple weeks. “Well, we have a group of folks who were long term unemployment, people unemployed for six months or more. These people came back into the program who weren't anticipated, but still eligible. So we probably saw a lot more long term unemployed than originally thought.” The Department is trying to match up the thousands of people applying for unemployment with a job.  So far, they've contacted about half the people eligible.
