Missouri's Republican Gov. Mike Parson has received roughly $6,300 for his beef cattle ranch through a federal program designed to help small businesses during the pandemic.

The Kansas City Star on Tuesday reported Parson was approved for a $6,288 loan in March. 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.
