2 • May 20-21, 2020 LOCAL bransonglobe.com Missouri offers guidance on Paycheck Protection Program payments made to unemployed workers Courtesy of Missouri Department of Labor As more and more Missouri businesses are beginning to take advantage of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans offered through the Small Business Administration, the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations’ (DOLIR’s) Division of Employment Security (DES) is providing guidance on payments made by employers to unemployed workers. The DES advises businesses taking advantage of the federal PPP loan to notify their employees as soon as possible if they intend to pay employees wages through the PPP loan. If an employer has chosen to receive the PPP loan to pay employees, employees do not have the choice of receiving unemployment benefits rather than the paycheck from the employer. Claimants who are notified that they will receive paychecks from their employer through the PPP loan should report their gross earnings for the week. In most cases, if an individual is being paid by their employer through the PPP and the amount is greater than what is allowed for the individual’s Weekly Benefit Amount (WBA) in unemployment, a claimant would be considered employed and therefore not eligible to receive unemployment benefits. Similarly, self-employed individuals receiving a PPP loan should not claim Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits for the same time period. Any unemployment payments made to claimants for the same time period for which they are being paid by an employer through the PPP loan, or any other type of employer payment, would be considered overpaid. If a claimant has already claimed unemployment for those weeks, they should report their earnings immediately to the DES by calling 573-751-4058 and select the appropriate option. A specialist will assist claimants in reporting those earnings. Any improperly received unemployment ing the $600 federal supplement available through Businesses taking advantage of the federal PPP loan should notify employees as soon as possible. (Shutterstock) payments, the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), must be paid back by the claimant for those weeks for which the employer includwas also paying them through the PPP. If earnings through the PPP loan are less than the WBA, claimants may be eligible for partial unemployment benefits, but claimants are still required to report those earnings each week the PPP funds were paid. Under the CARES Act, the DES is required to recover overpaid benefits. Failure to repay the overpaid benefits, including the weekly $600 additional federal payment, will result in a reduction of future unemployment benefits. Intentionally misreporting under-reporting earnings, including PPP earnings, to obtain funds under the regular unemployment program or the CARES Act qualifies as fraud. If an individual obtains benefits through fraud, the individual is ineligible for any additional benefit payments, must pay back the benefits received and is subject to criminal prosecution. For guidance on how to report earnings including or which unemployment and federal supplement payments have already been requested or received, visit labor.mo.gov/coronavirus (see questions 4, 5, and 16).

bransonglobe.com STATE Missouri lawmakers OK mail-in voting on final day Special to Branson Globe JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers wrapped up their work May 15 by passing bills allowing people to vote by mail because of the coronavirus and ramping up criminal penalties in response to an uptick in violent crime in the state’s biggest cities. Legislators signed off on the special voting provisions for the 2020 elections shortly before their deadline to pass bills in an unusual session that was interrupted for several weeks because of concerns about the virus that causes COVID-19. Voters currently can request absentee ballots only if they provide an excuse for why they can’t vote in person. Illness is one option, but the law isn’t explicit on whether the illness excuse covers healthy voters concerned about catching or spreading COVID-19. Under the bill sent to Republican Gov. Mike Parson, people considered at-risk of the coronavirus — those age 65 and older, living in a long-term care facility or with certain existing health problems — could vote absentee without needing to have their ballot notarized. Anyone else could cast a mail-in ballot but would need to get it notarized. The bill passed with bipartisan support but received mixed reviews from both parties. Republicans said it doesn’t include enough restrictions to ensure election security, and Democrats said it has too many rules. “When you are not wanting to go to the polls because you are either ill or fearful of becoming ill, but then you have to go get a notary to be able to not go to the polls, it doesn’t really fix the problem,” House Democratic Minority Leader Crystal Quade said. Republican Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft on Friday said he no longer supported the measure after lawmakers stripped a contested photo ID requirement out of it. Lawmakers returned to the Capitol to work on the state budget and other policies days before Parson lifted his statewide stay-at-home order in early May. Members of the public were allowed in the Capitol to watch debate but were encouraged to stay home, prompting concern from some lawmakers about lack of public involvement in crafting major policy changes. Both lawmakers and visitors were quizzed on their health and had their temperatures checked before they could enter the building. “The work that we did here today I think was important enough that legislators made the decision that they were going to go ahead and come to the building to do work,” Republican House Speaker Elijah Haahr said. “We understand the risks involved.” Few lawmakers wore masks in the final days of session, and legislators frequently sat close to one another to vote. Lawmakers also faced pressure to act on crime legislation following a bloody 2019 and a violent start to 2020. The deaths of two men on Tuesday night were Kansas City’s 63rd and 64th homicides this year. St. Louis police reported 53 homicides as of Friday. A bill headed to Parson’s desk would create the crime of vehicle hijacking, expand the number of crimes that are considered dangerous felonies, ban probation for some crimes, and broaden what’s considered a criminal street gang, along with increased penalties for taking part in gang activities. “This is going to help get the most violent habitual offenders off of the streets,” Republican Rep. Nick Schroer said. The bill sparked outrage from House lawmakers who said it could reverse a drop in the state’s prison population following a bipartisan push for criminal justice reform in recent years. “It doesn’t make us safer,” Republican Rep. Shamed Dogan said of longer prison sentences. “It sounds good in campaign ads, but it does not actually increase public safety. This has been shown time and time and time and time again by research.” Longstanding efforts to make Missouri the last state to adopt a prescription drug database to track addictive medications failed. Republican skeptics in the Senate expressed no interest in compromising on the House-backed bill Friday after a feud between the two GOP-led chambers. At issue was a House provision that could thwart efforts to build a wind-energy power line that was slipped onto another Senate bill without senators noticing. Senators on Thursday hurriedly revoked a bill they had just passed, a highly unusual move, when they caught the amendment. Few bills made it across the finish line during lawmaker’s roughly five month session, about 50 compared to more than 90 last year. May 20-21, 2020 • 7 Support Our Local Veterans!

Wrongfully convicted Missouri man gets an $8 million settlement SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) — A southeastern Missouri city has agreed to an $8 million settlement in a lawsuit filed by a man who spent 17 years in prison for murder before the state Supreme Court overturned his conviction. Jonathan Douglass, the city manager of Sikeston, announced the settlement Friday with David Robinson, who sued the city after he was released from prison in May 2018 when a judge ruled there was clear evidence that he didn’t kill local bar owner Sheila Box in 2000, the Southeast Missourian reported. Robinson alleged in his lawsuit that Sikeston police knew he was innocent in Box’s death but helped stop his conviction from being overturned during two appeals. Robinson was convicted of killing Box as she left a Sikeston bar, even though no physical evidence linked him to the crime and two witnesses who placed him at the scene recanted their testimony. Another man, Romanze Mosby, confessed to several people in 2004 that he killed Box, but he would not sign an affidavit making the confession official and then killed himself in his cell five years later. His confession was never introduced as evidence. The state Supreme Court overturned Robinson’s conviction in May 2018 and he was released after a judge appointed to review the case for the court found there was clear and convincing evidence that Robinson had not committed the crime. Prosecutors decided not to retry him. Robinson said police framed him because they didn’t like him. He acknowledged to The Associated Press in an interview that he had a criminal record that began when he was 15. But he always said he was at a family gathering when Box was shot, and three relatives verified his alibi. Douglass said the city will pay about $75,000 of the settlement, with the rest coming from its insurance.
