TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Department of Labor says some Kansans will see a reduction in their unemployment checks.

The department said Thursday that checks for Kansans receiving extended unemployment for 14 extra weeks will see their payments reduced 10.7 percent on or shortly after March 31.

The reductions in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program are the result of $85 billion in federal spending cuts that went into effect March 1. The cuts mean states that administer unemployment payments are getting less money.

Kansas currently qualifies for an unemployment program that provides up to 14 additional weeks of benefits to qualified people. The amount of benefits will be reduced but the 14-week period will not be affected.
