INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana will continue paying out the extra $300 in weekly federal unemployment payments despite a Tuesday court ruling that the state's Republican governor had the authority to cut off the benefit.

Those payments will continue because the state must give recipients a 30-day notice that they will stop, which extends past the scheduled Sept. 6 end of the federal pandemic unemployment programs, Indiana Department of Workforce Development spokesman Scott Olson said.
