Unemployment recipient to lose children allowance

Posted: Updated:

Tennesseans drawing unemployment will soon lose a weekly allowance for children.
Recipients currently receive $15 per child each week.
It was part of a  $142 million federal stimulus grant in 2009.
But now that money has been spent.
Governor Bill Haslam says ending the allowance for dependent children will save the state $40 million each year and boost the Unemployment Trust Fund.
