2. During an emergency unemployment benefit period exhaustees, who otherwise continue to meet the eligibility requirements for regular benefits pursuant to the provisions of the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq., and who are not eligible for any other unemployment benefits, including benefits provided for by any federal law extending benefits beyond those provided for as regular benefits or extended benefits, may receive weekly emergency unemployment benefits for weeks subsequent to June 2, 1996 in an amount equal to the weekly benefit amount of the individual's most recent regular unemployment benefit claim subject to the provisions of the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq. The maximum emergency unemployment benefits an individual may receive pursuant to this act is 50 percent of the regular unemployment benefits which were payable to the individual pursuant to the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq., (including benefits payable to federal civilian employees and ex-service persons or payable under the combined wage program) in the individual's applicable benefit year.
