JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The office of Attorney General Josh Hawley has reached a deal with ride sharing company Uber.
Missouri will receive more than $2 million dollars, after Uber was forced to pay out settlements nationwide.

This comes after the company failed to notify drivers about a security breach of user personal information in 2016.

Missouri law required Uber to notify affected residents in a timely manner, which Hawley argued took too long.
Impacted drivers will get a $100 dollar.
