Missouri Bill would Re-direct Federal Stimulus Checks for Prisoners who Owe Restitution

A Northwest Missouri state senator wants to re-direct federal stimulus payments which might be heading to prisoners who owe money to victims. Senator Tony Luetkemeyer, a Republican from, Parkville, sponsors the measure being considered during the legislative session in Jefferson City. . .

Luetkemeyer’s bill could head to the Senate floor at any time. Congress recently approved 14-Hundred dollar stimulus payments to Americans earning less than 75-Thousand dollars a year as part of its economic stimulus package.
