Koster&#39;s statement comes in response to three Republican officials who asked him whether he thought the law could be enforced in Missouri. Two federal judges upheld the health care overhaul. A third struck down the insurance requirement, and a fourth ruled the entire law is unconstitutional. Appeals courts will consider those rulings. Koster says Missouri risks possible sanctions by not complying with the law while waiting for a definitive ruling. Koster says lawmakers and the governor will have to weigh the risks of possible sanctions against costs for complying with the law. The GOP officials who requested the legal analysis criticized Koster&#39;s response for not being sufficiently specific.</p></li><li><p>Trustees at the <a href="http://www.uillinois.edu/">University of Illinois </a>are scheduled to vote on a plan to increase tuition by 6.9 percent for&nbsp;&nbsp;students who start this fall. That means new students at the university&#39;s <a href="http://illinois.edu/">Urbana-Champaign </a>campus would pay $11,104 a year in tuition. Students at the <a href="http://www.uic.edu/uic/">Chicago campus </a>would pay $9,764, while students in Springfield would pay $8,670. Those figures don&#39;t include fees, room and board. Last year, trustees raised tuition by 9.5 percent. University spokesman Thomas Hardy calls the increase trustees are scheduled to consider today &quot;a conservative proposal.&quot; Hardy says it keeps in mind the concerns of families and the financial needs of the university.</p></li></ul><p> Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:32:28 +0000 Julie Bierach 787 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Morning headlines: Wednesday, March 23, 2011
