Kansas on track to pay out extra unemployment benefit


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT/AP) – Kansas is on track to pay out an extra $300-a-week federal unemployment benefit as part of a coronavirus rescue aid package enacted late last month.

Top Department of Labor staffer Ryan Wright said the agency was in the process of testing the requisite system.

Roughly two dozen states have begun paying out the extra benefit, but Wright noted that neighboring states were also not yet up and running either.
