Posted Jul 21, 2021 4:30 PM

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s Republican Gov. Mike Parson received roughly $6,300 for his beef cattle ranch through a federal program designed to help small businesses during the pandemic.

Parson in March was approved for a $6,288 loan.

The loan is part of a federal effort to prop up small businesses so they can continue meeting payroll during the coronavirus pandemic.

Parson’s loan has already been forgiven.
