Nixon will announce budget cuts today
Gov. Jay Nixon is expected to announce today if he’ll make any reductions to the state budget – ending weeks of speculation for university and social service program administrators.
Nixon this week signed legislation funding public schools and the state departments of health and mental health without making any cuts.
The Missouri Athletic Club has received the first citation for violating St. Louis city's ban on smoking.
Interim health director Pamela Rice Walker says the club mistakenly believes it's exempt from the measure as a private club, saying the exemption only applies if there are no employees.
She says the department first heard about violations at the club in January, and gave the MAC 30 days to comply.
