Mo. relaxes jobless benefits rules in flood zone
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri's labor department is relaxing one of its rules for people who live in the southeastern flood zone and receive unemployment benefits.
The department says it will suspend the requirement that people check in every four weeks at career centers as condition of receiving jobless benefits. The suspension applies only in Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Stoddard, Scott and Wayne counties.
The department says it's doing so because of hazardous or difficult travel conditions in the flooded areas.
