Jefferson City, MO – Attorney General Chris Koster has cleared the Missouri Department of Natural Resources of an ethics complaint over its delayed release of an E. coli report from the Lake of the Ozarks.
The findings showed E-Coli levels at two separate spots on May 26th to be 19 times higher than the state standard.
St. Louis – The St. Louis Metropolitan Police have moved the 10 horses in the department's mounted patrol division after tests found elevated levels of lead in the stable's floor and loft.
The department occasionally stored hay in the loft at the stables, located near the Science Center in Forest Park. Lead levels in the air were not elevated, but the horses, and 22 officers, will be screened as a precaution.
Jefferson City, MO – Governor Jay Nixon is seeking $142 million in federal stimulus cash to expand broadband access to rural portions of Missouri.
If approved, about 91 percent of Missouri's population would have high-speed Internet access.
Scott Holste is Governor Nixon's Press Secretary:
"We still have large parts of Missouri that are not served by broadband...this is going to insure that small businesses in every part of the state are able to compete on a level playing field," Holste said.
