Mississippi stimulus includes more for unemployed

Agencies in Mississippi are still cautious about saying exactly what they'll get from the federal stimulus package or what they'll do with it, but one group of Mississippians has already benefited — the unemployed.

Beginning the last week of February, the unemployed got $25 more a week.

It comes from the federal government in a separate allotment whether residents receive the state's minimum of $30 a week in unemployment benefits or the state’s maximum of $230.
