Barbour said Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2009 that he wouldn’t accept about $50 million in unemployment compensation that Mississippi could receive as part of its $2.5 billion share of the federal stimulus package. Barbour claims to get the money, the state would have to change its unemployment laws to give compensation to people who only work part-time. Only full-time workers are currently eligible for unemployment benefits. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)
