Mo. Lawmakers Snip From Budget

Jefferson City, Mo. – Missouri lawmakers are making gestures to help the state save a little money.

The House yesterday rejected pay raises for lawmakers. The Senate's President Pro Tem, Peter Kinder, says the state should stop paying for travel by Senators to various out-of-state conferences; a move that would save about $80,000.
