The bill is sponsored by GOP House Member David Sater, who owned and operated a pharmacy in Barry County for 30 years.  He says it would not bar pharmacies from selling the so-called "morning after" pill, but would guarantee their right NOT to if the owners so choose.

Three Democratic members of the Missouri House will chair committees next year, despite the increase in power by the Republican Party in that chamber.

The incoming Speaker of the Missouri House is hinting of a battle with Governor Jay Nixon over tax credits.
A committee appointed by the Democratic governor has recommended eliminating nearly half of the state's tax credit programs. House Speaker-elect Steven Tilley (R, Perryville) says he has doubts about the accuracy of the tax credit committee report.
"My preliminary evaluation of it is (that) they've used false data and incorrect conclusions to come up with the recommendations," Tilley told reporters at a press conference today.

Rachel Storch, D-64th District, was among those at the annual Christmas party given by the Roberts Co., the real estate and communications business owned by brothers Michael and Steve Roberts. Storch's attendance demonstrated the good relations she enjoys with the brothers. So, nobody was more surprised than she when, about four months after the party, the son of Michael Roberts, Michael Roberts Jr. -- he prefers "Mike" -- announced that he would challenge Storch in the Aug. 5 Democratic primary.
