(AP) - Alabamians who have used up their unemployment compensation benefits are getting an extension.

Tom Surtees, director of the Alabama Department of Industrial Relations, said federal legislation was signed this week extending benefits for jobless Alabamians for up to 7 weeks.

Surtees said more than 12,000 Alabamians may be eligible.
