Missourians who find themselves without a job, because they showed up to work drunk or high, would find themselves without an unemployment check under a bill being debated in the House. An amendment tacked on to the Unemployment Compensation bill would deny unemployment benefits to workers fired, because of substance abuse. Critics of the amendment complain it is written too broadly and would include more than just those who abuse alcohol or drugs. Despite the criticism, the amendment passes easily. The bill remains under debate in the House.
