Special Session May Be Fix for Unemployment Mistake

The state Legislature did not end up passing a bill this session that would let about 46-thousand Missourians keep extra unemployment relief the state mistakenly gave them. Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden of Columbia says a fix could be part of a special session.

Early on, Governor Parson supported the idea of the state trying to get money back from Missourians who were overpaid. Whether Parson would agree to call a special session to resolve the problem is unknown. The state doled out about 115 million dollars in unemployment overpayments.
