Kelly Cunningham, economist at the National University System Institute for Policy Research, expressed concern that the state would spend more money and effort trying to get back overpayments than the overpayments were actually worth. He said the move is evident of bureaucratic inefficiencies.

“It will probably take more to make it up later,” he said. “I wonder if they would just throw up their hands and say it’s not worth it.”
