Maryland’s labor secretary testified Monday that federal enhanced unemployment benefits will continue at least through August during a hearing related to lawsuits seeking the continuation of the benefits.

A temporary restraining order barring the state from following through on its plans is set to expire Tuesday. The judge is expected to decide whether to extend that order by Tuesday morning.
