On Thursday, August 19, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh sent a letter to Congress on behalf of the Biden White House. They encouraged states to use funds allotted to them in the American Rescue Plan to extend pandemic unemployment insurance programs on a state by state basis. The Biden administration made clear they will not be pushing to extend these programs on a federal level. You can see ExtendPUA.org's thoughts on that here.
