"Previously, there was some confusion regarding how this legislation would be funded. This issue has been clarified and the bill will be paid for by funds from the ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009), specifically funds from the American Appropriations Act of 2009. Due to current cost cutting measures in Congress, appropriate funding for this bill was essential, if it were to get any consideration for passage."

glad to finally hear for sure its paid for.

Just received this email

This just in from Rochester Examiner reporter Michael Thornton:

#99erAID, twitter chat

Jason Tabrys sent me the following information concerning an important 99er event scheduled for tomorrow, February 15.

Forsaken by the United States Government and vilified by some, America's long term unemployed, the 99ers, have strained to let their voices be heard. Growing by nearly 34,000 every week America's 1.4 million 99ers are hungry to work and fighting to survive in this economy that they helped build.

Join us on Tuesday February 15, 2011 at 8PM EST for #99erAID, a twitter chat designed to bring 99ers, 99er advocates, and journalists together to discuss the latest 99er news and strategy ideas for the growing, peaceful movement.

For more information go to Twitter.com and follow @99erAID (Examiner.com's Jason Tabrys) and please help us get the word out about #99erAID .

You can see more about this event at Jason’s Examiner website: We are all 99ers

Here is a statement from Lee's office. At this time the bill is not paid for. Hence no Republican co-sponsors

"The bill that I am introducing with Congressman Scott, The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Expansion Act, would ensure that these long-term unemployed workers get the long overdue assistance that they need to support their families, make ends meet and contribute to our economy," Lee said in a statement. "Our bill would add 14 weeks of emergency unemployment benefits and would make sure these benefits are retroactively available to people who have exhausted all their benefits and are still unemployed."

Given Republican hostility to additional deficit spending -- Lee's office said the cost of the extra benefits would not be offset -- the effort will likely amount to little more than a reminder that long-term unemployment persists even though much of the nation's political discourse is focused on signs of economic recovery.
