Trick or treat hours will find temps dropping through the 30s with gusty winds and some rain and snow filling the air. Wraparound band of snow moves in Friday night into Saturday morning across central and eastern Kentucky. That's the one that could drop some light accumulations on grassy areas and elevated surfaces.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has rejected an extension of
unemployment benefits because of concerns about the growing
national debt, meaning payments will continue to phase out for more
than 200,000 people a week.
The last extension expired at the end of May. House Democrats
said more than 1 million people who have been laid off for long
stretches have already lost benefits.
The bill would have extended benefits through the end of
November, at a cost of $33.9 billion.
Democrats brought up the bill under a special procedure in which
no amendments were allowed and debate was limited. Under the
procedure, the bill needed a two-thirds majority to pass.
