Jefferson City, MO – Missouri lawmakers have two weeks left to meet the constitutional deadline for passing a state budget. They say they expect to make that deadline, but they're also counting on more work after that date.
Leading legislative Republicans expect Gov. Bob Holden to veto the budget and call them back for a special session.
The sudden emergence of the SARS virus has focused the attention of medical professionals around the world in a way not seen since the early 1980's, when the HIV-AIDS scare dominated the news of the day.
Though less attention is given to HIV these days, the virus remains a serious health threat that infects up to 50,000 people each year in the U.S. alone.
